Bob Dylan by funrama Bob Dylan by funrama
Here's a commission portrait i did of Bob Dylan for someone. this was a toss-up because it's 50/50 traditional/digital. I did the drawing with gray washes for 2 hrs then colorized it in Photoshop for about 2 hours...way too long for my attention span.

Bob Dylan by ~funrama is an interesting portrait using a well balanced combination of traditional and digital techniques, with a result worthy of being seen. ( Suggested by Nyiana-sama and Featured by Thiefoworld )

Because some heroes can be forgotten to most. Of course I have not forgotten him.

I don't think it so much that they're forgotten, rather their story isn't passed on to the next generation.

His eyes are supposed to be more blueish but I guess it's supposed to be the lighting and colouring of the picture :P

The amount of detail on this is amazing XD The fact that it didn't take you longer is even more impressive.

And I hear you on the attention span thing XD

Very nice, don't even mind the artistic license with Bob's eyes, which I'm pretty sure are blue in real life. The mallard (duck?) is a great reference to Bob's Minnesota roots. The detail work, especially in the pants, is outstanding!
