David Cook Painting by Majoh David Cook Painting by Majoh
David Cook from American Idol! I've watched parts of American Idol in past seasons, but this guy has really grabbed my attention this year! I love watching it every week just to see what he'll do next - I think he's a great performer! It helps that he is rather cute, too. I think he looks like a rocker version of my fiance ~MigrantJ :D So I decided to paint him...

This started as a speed painting, but it had a lot of challenges that made it too difficult for me to speed paint. That guitar, for one!

I ended up using it as a sandbox over the course of the last couple weeks in between other projects. I changed the lighting a few times, and repainted some of the tougher stuff a few times trying to figure out how it might look with my crazy invented lighting scheme which is completely different from the reference I used.

I'd wanted to try some new stuff, but I think it ended up looking a bit more like an overdone airbrushed painting than anything I'd hoped for :D Still, it was fun, and I practiced the ever-challenging male form, and paid homage to one of my new favorite rising stars. :D
