This has very bluesy mood and good posterization. The texture of the sky is nice too.

Anthony Carpenter said...

Very impressive, Mr. Snider.
I agree with Josh, that sky really works well.
I like the way you handled the lighting and stance of the figure. It's very emotive.

very powerful sky.. works well against the contrast of the more graphic foreground.. great work!

Poet said...

Very nice. Ledbelly?

josh: Thanks. It started as a sketch in painter. The texture in the sky was done in Photoshop.

Mr. Carpenter: I was trying hard to get the pose and emotion just right. Thanks.

craig: Thanks. I was attempting something a British illustrator does quite often (and about athousand times better). His name is Neil Campbell Ross.

Ben: Glad you like it. I know your also a blues fan. It's just a generic archetype blues guy I made up out of my head.

I like this first one a lot. I like the feeling of space within which he is playing.
