Of Tributes in Music & Fashion

Hi all.
I heard of Amy Winehouse's death through a message on my phone a friend sent me. And it came to me a such a shock.
More so because though I had been listening to her music for a long time, it was those days I was checking up on her site on any update on a long due new record. And then it was just blank.

I've been wanting to draw her for too long now, I thought of many compositions. Then this happened.
I loved every bit of working on this. Also, 'Wake Up Alone' from her second and last studio album, Back to Black is my favorite song by her. RIP Amy.

I've been working on some vector art as well! Portraiture is something I don't consider my forte. And portraits in vector, well. This was a noble start.
I stumbled upon Graffiti6's music and loved it! So here is Jamie Scott's portrait! Their up and coming album 'Colours' is amazing, must listen!
Also, Nicola Formichetti. He is god. And is constantly on a move to change the face of fashion. Whether it be Mugler, Uniqlo or styling for Gaga, he never fails to amaze. So here it is, a portrait of him.
It started out as a mindless, fun sketch in one of my old, old sketchbooks and became this! I might add to it and make all the character profiles :)
So yes, shoot shoot with feedback :)
Have a nice day!
