Kanye West

OK! This is another old drawing that I did to test my self. This was fun to do. It all in number 2 pencil. At the time I was in to portraits... Which is funny because you couldn't pay me to do a portrait now. Nothing against portrait artist, but I have to add something or I'll go INSANE... Anyways, hope you like it!!!!!

Grand said...

Excellent job!!! Textures and details very realistic...
Digital work or just with a pencil, portraits, caricatures, nudes art : decidely you have "golden fingers" dude!!!

Anthony Diecidue said...

Oh yeah, I remember this one. It's one of the drawings you showed me when I first hired you and it showed me you could do caricatures with the right nudging. And this is the the one with the fucked up thumb. HAH! You were a cocky fuck. Ah memories.

Jeffrey W. Meyer said...

So sick! SO SICK!

great textures!!

I love how you capture a strong realism in your work but then leaving pieces of the work unfinished or sketchier... your way of proving its not a fucking photo... you rule dude!

I still think you suck though!

Damion009 said...

Thanks Jeff.. I can always count on you to keep me in line! L?o/L

Jörn said...

Fantastic textures and contrasts. I like the use of negative space.

Just messin man, mine blows. ha

Damion009 said...

wow Rob.... this is one of my favorite comments.... funny as FUCK!!!

MsVennie said...

Wow - my husband and I are so incredibly impressed by your artwork. You are so highly gifted.

You need an art agent to get you commissions - for instance, wealthy families would pay literally thousands to have someone as talented as you do their portraits.

you should send this to Kanye's fan site - I bet he'd buy it if he saw it.

You're amazing, really. I am in awe.

Meesimo said...

Yeah I 'member this one! It's terrible!
Nah, just kiddin, Still has that awesome depth, even online...you've come a ways since then, but it still holds up nicely...good times
