Newgrounds Background Image Theme

David Gilmour.


We had to do a project in my art class of a shattered image of a famous person of our choice, so I picked Pink Floyd's guitarist, David Gilmour.

This is fantastic, you got the face really well and the shading looks pretty professional. Also, I like the hair.

"Almost mesmerizing. I like it!"

It took me about 2-3 weeks of 50 minute periods in art class to do it. I had to basically scribble on the other projects that I was supposed to be doing to get caught up in time :c

The hair took me the longest, becuase i really had no clue on how to fucking do it at first. I'm happy with the result.

that's my name


The shattered image concept is quite unique. It's something I have never seen in artwork. Almost mesmerizing. I like it!

Although the left eye is a bit odd, you definitely got the rest nailed down. I had just now noticed that he was holding a guitar. It seemed to get lost in the picture.

Aside from that, good work!

Mezmerization responds:

Yeah, doing the project was fun. It put me so far behind on all of my other projects, though ;_;

Thanks for the review!

Nice one.

You definitely got the face right, luckily I just read a Wikipedia article about Pink Floyd and found out who David Gilmour was. I like the way the guitar looks, but ti seems like it's coming from a weird angle, and the shading above his eye looks odd, somewhat different than what the reference image showed. Overall, it was a nice drawing and well-matched to the original. It was not simply a brick in the wall, but a good piece of art. Keep up the good work man!

Mezmerization responds:

I agree about the odd shading of the eye and it seeming like it was coming from a weird angle. Thanks for the review.
