Prince drawing 1985 inspired

I've been working on pieces that pay homage to my love of certain albums like ATWIAD Parade SOTT Purple Rain the Black album etc

here something I've been messing around with after reading the story of 'when Prince went blond' in connection to the ATWIAD painting cover

not done yet.

I'm still getting used to drawing Prince's face again

That is beautiful. I used to sketch and paint years ago; I've been thinking about doing it again for Prince and others who are no longer with us... I guess you never forget how to do it; you just forget to do it. Thanks for the tribute, the reminder, and the inspiration.

U should. We need more renditions of Prince in art. Musicians are doing their part and Sheila E the Revolution the Time & the Family are killing it. So it is time 4 us to join the other artists who have already started.

Remember the Prince art exhibit that was started maybe 3 years ago but was cancelled?

Sal, you did this? Wow, what an expression of love ❤️
It's really good too.
Thank you for sharing it.
I think it's important to be creative, to make things with our hands.
Yes, it is time for to start putting energy into things like this for Prince, I felt that just now.
I'm not an artist but I'm going to sit down and draw something about and for him.

He looks handsome there. What does the wording to his left say?

Are you going to frame it? You can always have it to look back on, your own creation of this moment in time.

I'm going 2 do something with it. But it is going to be 1 piece of a series I'm doing on the ATWIAD era/period/people etc I've already started one on the PR era.

I dig the coloring and layout. I do enjoy that you're using the lifter facade from the PR tour and the "Raspberry Beret" video.

I think there should be more flowers. He talks a lot about the flowers in your yard, etc, and it looks a bit sparse. Also, where is his other leg? I realize it's supposed to be behind that flower, but ... I assume you're filling in that whole bottom section overall.

In general, it's a very, very nice drawing. One of the better ones I've seen from fans. Some are downright horrid. I'm like "who you lookin' at???" haha

hahaha

.

thanks for the critique

.

yes, 2% left is flowers, I have them there actually, but extremely lightly drawn, so the black outline doesn't show. I pulled the orange flower color from the album cover

.

and the leg will be extended, but there will be mostly flowers down there

.

I tend to be extremely detailed, but I wanted to imitate to degree the album arts more 'fanciful' feel.

I could have been done a week ago, but my mind started thinking of cramming it with more stuff and getting more detailed.

.

Thanks TrivialPursuit
