Daily Deviation

Given 2012-03-05
Kurt Cobain by =Rockkar is a beautifully executed tribute to Kurt Cobain. The hair and smoke really caught my eye. ( Suggested by Arichy and Featured by DomiSM )
:iconmcrockstar:
Kurt Cobain! Heh! I start of by saying that this drawing is beautiful. I congratulate you on this well deserved DD! :)
The theory of the drawing being based on a photo does not matter because you have really captured that moment. "That" moment which Kurt enjoys and tried to transmit to his fans. The entire composition is well versed, right from the dirty-blond hair to his the detailed nose.
I couldn't help click on the deviation as I scrolled down the homepage. As a fan of Nirvana, I personally love the artwork and I believe that this deserves all the FAVS it is going to get. :D
A few details which from my point of view could improve the drawing could be a better background. The simplicity is great but something more grunge and fancy could attract more visitors to the art.
Once again, I congratulate you =Rockkar!
Hope to see much great art from your gallery!
Thanks,
=McRockstar

The art work is one of the best i have seen of the songwriting/guitar/vocal god.

As far as negative critique goes:
Try to focus on the clothing more. It looks very drab and basic, especially the shirt. The button on the jacket as well could use some help. Next time try capturing more toning in the hair (i know hair can be really tricky, so all together, good job.)

On the other hand:
The ciggerette seems to be the focal point of the picture, and you did do a speldid job at capturing it. From the smoke, to ten end of the ciggy, all the way to how it is postured in kurts mouth are just amazing. In fact, everything painted around that areais quite grand. The lips are pretty fantastic, and the hairs on the chin i would have to give a 10/10 too. the sunken in cheek is pretty detaitled as well. I like the background, it gives him a kind of "holy" look. As well, the light shining through the hair is quite amazing.

And on a personal note, thanks for making kurt look like kurt and not a beefed up version of kurt. You have captured his sorrow in a soulful sort of way.
