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 for his ideas!!)

Maggie update

Still working on this one! I think I need to fix her right eye...
Hey, I guess this is my tenth post or something! Wow!

Cos they're cousins!

I sketched my cousins today for two acrylic paintings I have in the works. It's been a while since I actually drew with a pencil and paper instead of a stylus! Since you don't know them I'm going to say that the drawings look just like them! :D
