Hey ya'll. Latest poster. Sorry bout posting links. Sadly, i had trouble with the easy directions. Thanks for your patience. I'll go ahead and include the other pics i screwed up. Crits are very welcome.
Aaaand, I'm out. Peace!
These are awesome! If you do stuff other than posters, please post it in this thread!
[insert clever thing]
these are really really really good...
you've captured the emotion of the artists really well...
where did u develop your style? do you go to school for art??
well great stuff.... please post more
we hiphop heads don't get much play on these boards... a nice change from the fantasy chicks and dragons...
I'm diggin these
Good drawings, and tight painting!
I'm not sure about that green outline around Jay-Z, but overall good job!
p.s. I freakin' love that song "girls, girls, girls," by Jay-Z
I think if you keep the color of the outline of the characters the same color as the outline of the titles, you'll get much better blending effect.. I hope that got thru.. j-z is ma boy!
Being a huge hip hop fanatic like I am.....I go goo goo gaa gaa over these...

yeah yeah...all the jayz fans. i'm glad people out there still know who KRS is (and know how important he is too).
the art: great stuff. i agree the outline around J's figure seems odd...maybe i'd have gone for another warm colour. i really love the red eyes on meth and red (probably from what they do best :p) hope we get to see more of these! (if not, do gangstarr)
Gangstarr is the man.
I really like "Mass Appeal," "Moment of Truth," and "Above the Clouds"
sweet....great likenesses, painting and overall composition...luv em

Thanks for the responses and suggestions. A couple of folks aren't very keen on the green outline for Jay-Z, but don't seem to mind the other outlines, so i guess it's the color some people aren't digging.
As for the school part, i went to school in Miami studying commercial art. The school was ok, but anywhere you can find a bunch of artist is a great place to be, as long as you don't just drink your 4 yrs away. Hence searching the forums.
I've got more hip hop psters on the way. See ya online.
Aaaand, I'm out. Peace!
Yo man, I looked at this thread, saw the pics and was like holy crap! I know this guy. Nice stuff man, I've seen most of them but I didn't know you were posting here. Sweet. Later dude.
That's come cool artizzle my friezzle
Now what you should be doing is either DMX or Ludacris. But maybe that's just me.
The one with Redman and Meth is the best for my taste because it has a lot of movement. I like Jay Z the less, but anyway I don't like Jay Z
The next one you should NOT do is Missy Eliott... hate her
Ha! I love the Mos Def one.. all I can picture is him on Chappelle's show "WAOO! You ready for some poetry mother @#$^ers!?"
But seriosuly, these are awesome. I'm not TOO keen on hip hop and all but it looks like you captured the liknesses very well. The colors are lovely, also.

Well done. I dig the green. I like all the outlines, and they are very well rendered! But as NaS would say (F&@% Jay-Z!) And where the heck is B-I-G?!
I don't spellcheck...
