Guitar heroes sketch pt. 1


One of my Dad's band-mates was impressed with the drummer caricature did a while back, and requested one of some of his favorite guitarists. so, here are the first four sketches to start this off.

pictured: David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, Eddie Van Halen, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page.

pretty happy with 'em so far, though i will have to tweak Gilmour and Van Halen before i'm 100% happy.

let me know what you think.

These are looking great Will. I especially like the Jimmy Page. Maybe with the Gilmour - if you take a bit of weight from his chin and give him a larger forehead you might get even more likeness?

Yesssssssesesses Hermosisimo! Continue Will, looking fab
This is more of a personal opinion, more "what I would do" because it has happened to me. So take it as an idea, not as "you have to"------


I'd try more about contrasting shapes, specially on the hair part- Jimmy is perfect because his giant hair contrasts with his curves on the face. But, the rest of the haircuts don't have a specific shape, they just "follow" the head. These are sketches, so I shouldn't say nothing definitive, really. Un saludo

Thanks for the comments guys.

will- thanks, I'm least familiar with Gilmour, so that helps.

she-thing- you're right, graphically, abstractly, they're rather uninspired. i'll work on that for the final

Marc- thanks, as always.
