MJ head


Here's one I was doing of Michael Jackson while I was waiting for customers in the Park; I still want to put a body on him and maybe have him moonwalking out of his grave... or something. Or I might try to show the public's fascination for stars who have died, and how it gets overblown.
For now, here's his head.

That's awesome...he really looks like an alien. Looking forward to seeing the full figure.

Thanks, that's what I was going for: not just his outlandish, alien looks, but the blank stare into space as if he doesn't belong on this planet. Also, I wanted to show him a little unshaven, which makes him look even stranger. The photo reference I used shows him this way.
I have to find the time to finish it off...

although an artistic interpretation of the public's fascination with dead celebrities would be nice, my vote's for him moonwalking on his grave!

great start with the head though.

Thanks, Jason- maybe I'll do both- moonwalking from his grave with the public lapping it up.
Thanks for your observation- cool that we're on the same wave-length.
