"Let's hope you never leave old friend, Like all good things on you we depend, So stick around 'cause we might miss you, When we grow tired of all this visual."

I can't make a series of Queen artwork without the legendary, falsetto singing drummer Roger Taylor!
I'm VERY happy with how this turned out - right from the beginning I had a strong start and it kept going from there! It's always nice to have artwork that falls together - but artwork like this is also very easy to overwork, so I had to know when to stop!
As always, my art is nearly impossible to photograph, so in person the values read differently than they do through a screen. I've tried my best to match values as close as possible, but every screen is different!
This took me around 10 hours start to finish, and is done on 16"x20" black suede illustration board using an Iwata CM-C+, Createx paint, and black and white charcoal.
Please leave me a comment down below and let me know what you think! Any and all feedback is deeply appreciated!
Thanks for looking!
This tiny little baby is headed off to England for a fundraiser.
It has the loveliest shade of deep turquoise, but the iPhone seems to not be able to interpret it - I’ve toyed with color correction over and over again, but can’t get it to look right. 😕
Anyway, Little Guy. Traveling mercies to you, make a good showing, and do some beneficial work!
