ELVIS COSTELLO by IvannaMatilla ELVIS COSTELLO by IvannaMatilla
Dedicated to :iconllantodemudo:

Started and finished in an afternoon. I was very inspired.
:dance:
Diego Cortés: este dibujo es para vos, que fuiste lo suficientemente valiente de mandarme Painted From Memory para que yo también me enamorara de Costello. Te quiero mucho.

EC. The only musical artist that I've ever collected all of their work. I'm a long time fan. Armed Forces was awesome! I just got momofuku but haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.

Cool.

I saw him the only time he came to Argentina, and it was magical. It was so great, it was unforgettable. He sang 20 songs without stopping. I have almost all his works.
Thanks a lot for the comment! :thanks:

:lol: I truly did mean to comment on this, but I got so busy I only had time for the quick click on the favourite button so I wouldn't lose it :)
I love the little details, the pattern on his tie, the unruliness of his scruff ;) and his chunky glasses frame. You did a great job capturing a very 'Elvis' feeling and I almost expect him to burst into song or make some pithy remark about the shrine in my room ;P

brilliant! (he looks like my uncle here..) I like how realistic it is, yet you can see it's not a photo. it dances along the edge of drawing/photo nicely.

Amazing drawing. Unfortunately the fullview wont load so I'm left to drool over the preview :(
Generally I put for the effort to critique something if I'm going to put forth the effort to say anything at all, but seeing as how I'm only left with the preview, I don't have much of anything to offer.

Great Drawing. I love the detail. Very nice work. Also the expression is interesting, filled with life, but not overdone. Very original.
What medium was this done in? First glance says pencil but I think it's a bit to smooth in places. Is it a painting of some sort?
Very nice work :)

Cool choice of subject and great rendition. You've captured his expression well and just the fact that you got it dark enough for the detail to show up on screen seems cool to me :)

Supongo que no te debe gustar nada que te digan que parece una foto porque para eso estan las fotos ¿no? Pero el tratamiendo de las sombras, luces, la naturalidad de la mirada y el encuadre del retrato es inmejorable.

Gracias por un nuevo fav.

Che, me encanta que parezca una foto. Viendolo en el thumb engaña un poco. La referencia la saqué de una foto que salió en la revista ViVA, donde le hacen una entrevista. La vi a la mañana y a la noche ya tenía hecho el dibujo. Me encantó la expresión que tiene Costello en esa foto y quise capturarla.
Gracias infinitas por tu comentario!!! :date:
