Blake's Got a New Face

Well this is an illustration of the song Blake’s got a New Face by Vampire Weekend. I had the idea that Blake's new face was deformed instead of it being better off then it was before. In this painting I was experimenting with a different way to paint, process wise and also color wise. Over all I found this new way very enjoyable and interesting. I like the painterly feel that it has and I think I’m going to work on improving this way of painting. Only time will tell if it will work out in other paintings I guess. Btw I used Sketchbook pro 2 to sketch it out, then did most of what you see in Photoshop. I really like sketchbook pro for sketching but there are some things about the program that bother me and I tend to want to switch over to Photoshop after the painting gets to a certain point. It seems that I have more control of the painting in general in Photoshop but you guys should defiantly check it out if you don’t know what I’m talking about. I think it’s only about $20 for sketchbook pro 2. I did the fat panda mostly in it and the Warrior all in it, so that’s some of the things that you can do in it.
