Nice work Chee...i mean Kweli by chriscopeland Nice work Chee...i mean Kweli by chriscopeland
So before i started this one i went and looked at :iconcheeks-74: Gallery and was reminded of how much i look up to this guy, and how AMAZING his stuff really is, after doing that i was motivated to do something in his style.

He actually taught me alot about what i know about coloring, i mean at his house he gave me some of his secrets....again, SOME, obviously he kept some stuff from me becuase even when TRYING to emulate his stuff, he still makes mine look like GARBAGE, lol.

Anyway, this one is a homage to one of my Mentors, and a PEACE and thanks for all the amazing inspiring work that you do for everyone here on DA, and for the way that you have helped me in my work and personally.

Hope you guys enjoy, PEACE!

Definitely man, i got tons to learn and not pressure to learn it, just passion to become better at doing it, so take ya time. Yeah i want to start changin up my comfortable composition choice, and start utilizing more of the page in different ways, and i like the idae of a horizontal shot. Also, my attempt whenever doing something like this where im utilizing someone else's "style" i always want for the KWELI to come through, so thats a given. And for the shout, i mean COME ON HOMEBOY, you was DUE! lol.

after checking out this cool pic, I went to Cheek's page and did a lil bit of studying (he is a damn good artist, you're right=]) and saw some subtle differences. His work has a slight bit less detail. I saw that and also the detail he does have is not black line work, it's colored (his lines are colored rather than black). I don't know if I am making sense. heh

Also I noticed that has a lot more contrast in his color scheme as well in the overall works I've seen than in your emulation. You also don't have too much coloring in your gallery so it seems like that's something you can do more of and practice and that will show.

Keep up the hard work and see if you can apply those things and I think you'll see the growth that you're trying to achieve. Take care bro

Cheeks sure does have that affect on people, doesn't he?

Even though you moved close to his style I think this one is till very much your own. This is very cool... I would love to see an entire IP based around this guy.

And tell Cheeks to finally jump in on the Hitote Project! Hehe.

Awesome work as always, sir!

M!
