I'm in some kind of Bowie phase now. Both as a fangirl and as an artist.
As a result, lots of interviews and documentaries to study his ways of work, since he actually was a true artist.
And also lots of art to study his face and just to have fun.
This is an illustration based on Bowie's darkest, yet - in my opinion - the most aesthetically pleasing period. The Thin White Duke dealing with his addiction.
Or another name for this illustration: Kids, don't do drugs. (Become a pop star and they give you them for free! © Love Actually)
Composition and color research
Couldn't quite figure out how to upload gifs here, so a bit different way to show the process.
