Jurne paints Poet Sketch #2
Its great to see that the Exchange is really jumpin off! Everyone is putting down some serious style, you all got me really motivated and grateful to be a part of this project.
Here is the 2nd Poet outline that I painted. I reworked the sketch a little, making it a hybrid of both of our styles, while keeping the movements of the letters very similar to Poet's original sketch. The stump leg of the E in my version came out kind of funny, I dont feel like it fits the rest of the piece. I debated putting white highlights or shines in the piece, but decided against it, thinking that they wouldn't add to the overall style. In hindsight, I would put some fuzzy shines on certain parts of the letters to emphasize the bulbous style they have in Poet's sketch.
Poet's treatment of the sketches that I drew for him definitely inspired this color scheme, pastels and skin tones. Shout out to Bonus, who had a dope piece underneath this.
