Songstress and Seductress

The above pic is a speedpaint of songstress, Amy Winehouse. It turned out almost zombie-like so I guess that means it's a good likeness.

Below is a cropped part of a piece done for the blog 'The Attractive Art Collective'. It's a group blog I'm part of with some great artists contributing art of the female variety. For this piece I was inspired by the Frazetta female form. I used felt tip pens with additional drawing in Photoshop.

You definitely got the likeness. It's sad how much she's changed. I did an illustration of her for Philadelphia Weekly a few years ago and she's unrecognizable now.

Mr. Sable- It's no one in particular, just a generic sword and sorcery chick.

Love the Frazetta style--he always drew such naturally human female shapes. Your homage is very nice.

the Amy painting is one of the poignant images I have seen in a long time - tragic.
