This is my Tribute to Michael Jackson!

As promised it's complete (June 25th 2010)! I worked on it for over 2 hrs today! Hope everyone enjoys it and much as I enjoyed drawing it! It was a labor of love! :heart:

Done in color pencils and black and white charcoal on tinted paper.

Love it. I jumped here from KIKI's journal couple days ago and saw it. I came back to see it again. I really admire you. You see every generation of Michael. Beautiful brown face is brightening. Afro is also wonderfully done. The lovely eyes....I love it.

Oh, thank you so much Hitomi! I try to draw Michael at different ages or stages in his life!

It's one of those drawings that you create and you surprise yourself with the results! It's my all time favorite!

I finished this one 1 year after his death! I just had to draw him the way I remembered him when he was young!

Yes, his brown skin is so beautiful and his eyes are to die for! :love:

Also thanks for adding him to your favs! :kiss:

Humm, I don't know because one of my drawings was submitted by someone else!

I just submitted my Michael AfroFantastic drawing to them about 7 hours ago. I'm waiting to see if they will accept it! I know they will! :)
