Sleeping with ghosts by Gironimo Sleeping with ghosts by Gironimo
my tribute to the greatest band ever :heart:
finally seen them live @ Rock am Ring gironimo.deviantart.com/art/Bl…

I guess some of you will know it, it's the cover of the "sleeping with ghosts" album by Placebo. I first struggled with that project, because lots of people know my reference and have already drawn or painted it. usually artists who have worked on that project, too, will be more cirtical. Don't get me wrong, I really need your comments, but when I put all my heart in a project I tend to avoid criticism ;)
Generally it was a big challenge for me to cope with the original photo, most of all because I associate very emotional moments with the music of the album.

8 hours of work, pencils: 2b - 8b

Really nice job on the shading and details. The man's forearm looks a bit too long anatomically speaking but overall nice job :)

That's really good shading! I think you should put a mature filter on this though.
