Alphabands – M is for Marvin Gaye

M is for Marvin Gaye

marvin gayeIf you don’t agree that What’s Going On is one of the ten greatest records of all time, I’m afraid we can no longer be friends.

I started then scrapped a drawing of Matthew Sweet for this week’s “M” entry, but I’m much happier with how this turned out. It’s obviously not in the style I’ve been using for most of these entries, but I was really wanting to play around with some of illustrator Ray Frenden’s new Manga Studio brushes. The line art here is some sort of charcoal brush from his new dry brush set and the sepia textures are from his watercolor set.


AlphaBands is a weekly online collaborative project in which illustrators and cartoonists draw a band or musician for one letter of the alphabet each week for 26 weeks. See the art and find out more at the AlphaBands tumblr: http://alphabands.tumblr.com/
