The following is a list of all entries from the favorite musicians category.

Green Ringo

Green Ringo

Dark green colored pencil on standard sketchbook paper.

The quote is from “The No No Song”, and Ringo’s appearance is based on how he looks in this hilarious video:

Roger Taylor

Roger Taylor

Shadow drawing of Roger Taylor from the video for Queen’s “The Invisible Man.” True green colored pencil on white copy paper.

In this style of drawing, I focused on the shadows and other darker areas of Roger. “The Invisible Man” is one of my favorite Queen videos, so this was a fun one to do.

David Bowie duck

David Bowie duck

Rubber duck modeled after David Bowie in the 1970s. Red Bic marker and blue Pilot pen on white copy paper.

This was heavily inspired by the video for “Life on Mars?”.

Brian May bear

Teddy bear made to look like Queen guitarist Brian May. Black Sharpie on white copy paper.

I also considered making a bunny in Brian May’s likeness, but I did initial sketches of a Brian May bunny and a Brian May bear, and I thought the bear was the better of the two. This time, I used cross-hatching to fill in the dark areas, rather than pointillism, as I find cross-hatching to be more effective and less maddening.

Freddie Mercury bunny

Freddie Mercury Bunny

White bunny made to look like Freddie Mercury during the 1980s. Black Sharpie on white copy paper.

I love Queen, and I like bunnies, so this was all but an inevitability. The darker areas were filled in using pointillism. This is the first I’ve used pointillism since the fifth grade, and I was reminded why I didn’t enjoy it then.
