At this month's competition on the NCN forum we had to draw Elton John, so I gave it a try.
First I did a quick sketch, pencil on paper, and then I coloured it digitally, in Photoshop.
I focussed on the lightning.
Now, for a pianoplayer like Elton, it would have been more natural to draw the hands and keyboard too, you might think.
Hands...... I realised that I always try to avoid them. I can do them the cartoon-Mickey Mouse way, which is very useful when you're a speedy party-caricaturist. But it had been a long time since I did some realistic stuff. So with a Norman Rockwell book on my lap I did some studies.
Very helpful, I really should do this more often.
