A quick drawing of Mika I did one day.
A digital portrait I made of one of my favorite Artists and people, MIKA.

All I need is the love you breathe
Put your lips on me and I can live underwater
Especially, for c0smic-eternity, the progress of my last painting.
1. Sketch and first attempt to set the right proportions.
2. Base colours. Between 1. and 2. step should be one more picture (but I forgot to save it) with only few colour smears - skin colours, brown for hair and white and grey for clothes. First colour researches. Don’t look at his mouth, awful.
3. Mouth improvment. Searching for colours - part two.
4. I was trying to warm up the colours at his hair and diversify the colours of his skin - using not only skin colours (like peach, pink, orange) but also grey, blue, fuscous and red.
5. Searching for light in his hair.
6. Adding more colours to his neck and clothes. Finally. I realised how bad ear was looking before and painted it again.
7. Final realisation! Preparing the background. I added cherry glow to light up Mika. But then, I thought, that I want to close his face up, so…
8. …I changed the composition and I still don’t know which is better. Want to help and share your opinions? Then, I could post also the other version if you liked it more.
I’ve sent this picture to win Mika’s Lozza sunglasses and I don’t know if it has to have the most liked or not but please pretty please if you like my word or art,please click the link and like this. It means so much to me. Thanks :-)
so this was a commission of sorts for don-tspillmysecret, who requested the man himself. :) it was a lot of fun! I made it much harder for myself by sketching all those stupid lines that I then had to ink over and then digitally go over again. but the colors and everything else were great. Mika’s Any Other World is genuinely one of my favorite songs ever, and it got me through some serious shit. also, I love his style, so I surrounded his portrait by stuff inspired by the art on one of his albums, Life In Cartoon Motion.
ok that was a really long explanation when really the point is look guys it’s Mika yay let’s all be happy about him and all the colors ok good.
