Jim Morrison – Pencil SketchBy
“We want the world and we want it now! ” One of the best one liner’s that came out of the rock era thus far.
IMO – From When the Music’s Over. Throw that song on in a dark room with incense burning.
Jim Morrison enchanted and mesmerized the late 1960’s with his lyrics and his Adonis persona. Listening to Jim Morrison and The Doors instantly brings me back to my days in high school, with the romantic and eerie organ that would hang in the background of Jim’s vocals, you could be transported any where your imagination could take you. Or was that the extra substance that was sprinkled on the brownies.. none the less.
I started this pencil sketch of Jim and magnified it to 24 x 18-I bought a new toy. The Tracer, it will magnify images up to 14 times their original size. Rock on there, I see a few murals in my house in my future.
Going back to a basic number 2 pencil the outline and the shading have been smudged and blended. Adding depth to the deep pockets of Jim’s eyes, I have used General’s Pastel Chalk – 4481 Black. I have not laid down alot of lead, or chalk yet at this point, I have manipulated the outline and the darker parts of his facial features strongly with blending. .
