Caribbean vibes


Behold, an hour exercise attempt at drawing Bob Marley. Why am I drawing a reggae god? I didn't even know how to *spell* "reggae" until Firefox's spell check helped! I'm entertaining the idea of painting a mural at a new Caribbean restaurant. It's unlikely this will happen, but I might as well TRY to grab some art-based income. My style is colorful and bold, which is a great match with contemporary Caribbean art, so this could be a good match! There's just that pesky Bob Marley getting in my way. I've gotta render him better than this!

Wow, that is pretty amazing. Probably make the background a little darker, I am not sure, I am not an actual artist or know how the restaurant looks like.

This was just a test sketch for a potential painting, so it's not worth the time to go all out and make it as dark as it should be - but you're right that it would look better with a decent background.
