Jack White iii
In honor of the 15th anniversary of the formation of the White Stripes (On July 14, 1997 they performed 3 songs at an open mic night at The Gold Dollar in Detroit, and history was made.)
this painting was inspired by an old photo I found of young Jack White, posing with his guitar.of course I can never leave well enough alone...the blood comes from the scene in "It Might Get Loud" movie where he's playing and his fingers are bleeding, smearing over his guitar.
The Medusa and snakes I had fun with, guess I wanted to give him a deadly woman who could wrap her arms around him.
the painting is done in traditional oils and acrylics on board, 20x25
6 of the green light trails are done in Photoshop using an excellent set of brushes by a fellow deviant (will post who, I must track down the creator)...
I will re-create this effect using traditional acrylics or oils back on the original artwork in a few days, and re-upload the final, which will be all traditional medium. Final details like this I like to test drive in PS before I commit them to the canvas, because I don't want to ruin the painting at this point
