Skin Of A Drum by Espador Skin Of A Drum by Espador
SKIN OF A DRUM
The person I've been working around is the inspiring artist, Saul Williams a.k.a. Niggy Tardust. I've illustrated/sketched him because his work is mind blowing, dark and sometimes strange. For the portraits I've made,I have watched his performances, read his poems and listened to his songs. For the two portraits I made I chose the Song "Tao of now" Children of the night and "Skin of a drum" to base my drawings.

This is the second portrait.

Please look at the whole project on my Behance Network to find progress pictures. Feel free to appreciate it too. :peace:

I prefer this one, the colors are more cool in my opinion.

Do you use ink or it's just pencil?
