daft punk portrait school thing

I've been doing this painting for class and I'm not super excited about it, but I'm just trying to get it finished enough to turn in! It's turned into a digital painting exercise more than anything. It's way too similar to the photo than to call it anything else... My prof is cool with it since it's just supposed to be a poster-type thing. I slapped on "Daft Punk" in katakana because I'm sick of looking at this piece and I just want it to be done *bad example* WE CAN'T ALL BE PERFECT! I've discovered that I reeealllly like digital painting! It's super fun. Here are some progress pictures and the photo that inspired it and that I heavily referenced:

what it looks like right now

stiffff as hell

the photo

I remember seeing the show, super cool. This photo totally brought me back. We were right in front in the middle! Best ever. Coney Island 2007 waaah! I wore my Anamanaguchi T-shirt, of cawse

painting progress

Here are some pictures of my model painting from today's class!

after about 2 hours, the color is off from the hallway lighting

maybe after an hour?

crappy under painting-drawing, I ended up wiping it off and redrawing it higher on the board
