Step by step illustration of Bob Marley

in #art3 years ago

Good afternoon to the entire Steemit community

After a long absence I will try to republish some illustrations that I have done in all this time; Always showing step by step as usual.

This time I decided to make an illustration in honor of the iconic Reggae character, Bob Marley


Reggae is a musical genre that was first developed in Jamaica in the mid-1970s. Although sometimes the term is widely used to refer to different styles of Jamaican music, reggae is strictly understood as a genre specific musical that originated as the development of previous ones such as ska and rocksteady.

Robert Nesta Marley, better known as Bob Marley (Nine Mile, Saint Ann, Jamaica, February 6, 1945-Miami, Florida, United States, May 11, 1981), was a Jamaican musician, guitarist and composer. During his musical career he was the leader, composer and guitarist of the bands of The Wailers (1964-1974) and Bob Marley & The Wailers (1974-1980). Marley remains the best known and respected performer of reggae music and is credited for helping spread both the music of Jamaica and the Rastafarian movement (of which he was a committed member) to a worldwide audience.

The sketch

To make the sketch I used a vegetable paper and graphite pencil, in the traditional style in which I always work.


The Coloring

For coloring I used colored pencils on a white cardboard surface.


The final edition

Once the coloring was done, I outlined the black marker with a fine tip, digitized the art and with a bit of brightness and contrast this was the final result.
