Thom Yorke

I just got the new Thom Yorke album yesterday, and I highly recommend it! I've been a fan of Radiohead for ages, and I always wanted to draw/paint Thom, so I thought now was as good a time as ever.

I was going to wait until I was done with Maggie to start on the Thom painting, but I couldn't help myself! I'm going to keep the look of this one less photorealistic and more sketcherly for a change. I hope it doesn't suck!



UPDATE: Okay, so Lauren and I both like it with the sketchy body, and I'm sorely tempted to keep it this way. And yet...

What do YOU (the American public!) think?
EDIT (again): Toned down his hands. Yay!
EDIT EDIT (again again): Dimmed the wrist and added painted gradient to bg (much thanks to Xan at drawingboard.org for his ideas!!)

Wow, your faces... Hot damn. Is this based on photo ref? I've never seen Thom Yorke look like he was having this much fun!
