Johnny and Keith by abish Johnny and Keith by abish
This is taken from the US magazine the Rolling Stone. It was on the cover of the magazine. When I saw it I had to draw this one! Done on bristol smooth with 2b, 5b, graphite pencils. Keith was a challenge as well as the clothes! But I am please with the way it turned out! I think I must have spent over 40 hrs working on this piece! I'm glad to finally finish it. So what do ya think?

I drew this too, but I replaced Keith with a friend of mine (she's obsessed with JD) and I gave it to her for her birthday. I like the paper you use! and the contrast of lights and darks - I suck at that =/
VERY NICE! =D

bristol smooth is the paper??

Thanks, and I don't think your being rude, I like hearing what other artists think and see with my art! Yes his hand could use more work, I enjoy drawing the face and sometimes rush through the rest! Thanks again:)

yeah, they really do:) -keith could be his uncle or something -there seem to be some familiarity here and there.
i saw him last year, in concert :) i really hit gold with that one.... -i took my dad, hes loved rolling stones since he was a kid - guess whos been smiling ever since ;)
so yeah...it wasent really up close, to put it that way, but i was really close to the stage, so i did see them pretty clear :)
i remember i found it funny, like a 'thongue in cheek' thing, that keith was wearing a t-shirt and a bandana with sculls and crossbones underneath his hawaian shirt that night... ;) especially since it wasent long after it had been confirmed that he would be in pirates3.

That's awesome! I'm sure your dad will remember that experience for the rest of his days! Johnny picked the right person to model captain Jack after! The Stones have been around forever, at least it seems like it! They have great music!! Thanks for sharing that with me!!
