Here's a piece based on the whole crossroads myth of Robert Johnson.
Since there are only two known photographs of him in his early career I tried to imagine what he would look like if he were still walk'n the earth today as a souless tortured ghost of a being.
I'll include the pencil, the tonal (before I go to colour) the final and a detail
of the piece.
Pencilled by hand, scanned and painted in Photoshop (16 by 20 inches)
Hope you like.

There is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "i" in meat pie. Meat is the anagram of team...~Shaun "Shaun of the Dead"
The big eyes on the snake fingers make them look kinda cutsey and that IMO takes away from the over-all dark edgy look of the piece . Otherwise it's awesome
Damn thats nice, it really brings the feeling of it being a jazz player and the atmosphere works as well. Fucking awesomes, I'm saving this one.
aahhh what a mood and character, loving it !!!!!!!!!!!
look I dont know why I love you I just do
Very nice. I especialy like the crazy eyes. Perhaps a little more definition on the left side of the face. The colors & textures are outstanding! CHEERS
Which brushes did you use?
Heh. This is nice
Thats just great! Thanks for posting a closeup and the process.

Thanks for the response on the piece.
For the question as to which brushes I use - Oddly enough I don't stray from the basic brush set - I find (personally) that I get distracted if I give myself too many options.
