Freddie Mercury Illustration: Process

Well, my last illustration was a kind of a challenge, I always draw cute stuff and now I wanted to make something that isn't for once. So I tough on starting a rockstar illustration series! I'm a big classic rock fan and tough of doing a tribute for all that, I started with Queen's frontman Freddie Mercury. It was quite difficult, but I'm happy with what I achieved, here's some of the process:

Lol, this was the first sketch, I tough it was ok, but now that I see it...he's too short!
But I had a clear idea for the pose and composition.

This was the clean lineart of the final drawing, I didn't quite like it,
though something was wrong when I colored it.

I finally added color and decided to color the edges,
it looked awfull in the plain black lineart :)

And Finally I made different color themes,
you can choose whichever you want when ordering
