T-Pain for KING Magazine



This was the fourth painting that I did for KING magazine, and just like Kanye and Jim Jones, I didn't know who T-Pain was or anything about him for that matter. For this illustration, the a.d. wanted something futuristic and space-like. Being that this is a full page illustration, I would have liked to have had more time to develop this idea and explore T-Pain's character a little more. But again, for the time given, I'm happy with it. After finishing the Jim Jones, Kanye, and Wire paintings, I had four days left to complete this T-Pain painting.



One of the sketches done in prep for the final painting.

Figure background integration fantastic. I like that you are able to keep the attention focused on the subject and yet the BG is so brilliant - that can't be easy .. not to mention the time/energy crunch - excellent series -
