Illustration Friday - Voices

Example
Originally this was going to be an illustration of John Candy. As I was trying to capture his likeness the facial features seemed more fitting for an aging rock star. As I was searching for rock star photo references I stumbled upon Brett Michaels (Voice of Poison) and James Hetfield (voice of Metallica). I used photo references of Brett Michaels' cowboy hat and the mouth from James Hetfield. This was the result.
