This is my latest commission; the first two sketch were rejected- because they were too caricatured... The last one of the 3 of them was approved (barely if at all caricatured)- now I have to paint it in acrylic and finish before Halloween when they get married. And now to get to work...

Here's my latest painting of Bruce Springsteen. The client basically wanted the same thing that's up at "Rumours" (55th & 8th Ave. in Manhattan), but it pains me to copy something exactly, so I altered it slightly. The original concept was to focus on a red, white, and blue color scheme, because I didn't want to show the typical American Flag in the background like it was originally requested from my client. After I explained it to him, he agreed. So, for this newer version, I added a bit more color and strayed from the original concept a bit.
I'm still not finished yet, and really have to start a new commission, because the due date is coming right up and I haven't started yet (the sketch is done, but not the painting), and it's pretty involved.
So, eventually, I'll have the finished version of Bruce-2 up here- with a much better photo as well (these were quick snapshots, and I couldn't get rid of the glare, so I had to take most of them on angles for now...)
