I want every single one of these but ESPECIALLY Bowie and Elvis.
Bill Murray probably actually has a portrait of himself like that.

Making this was fun and hard, I haven’t done anything in a style like this. It took way more time than it should have. I also made a new brush for it so it would have that slightly sketchy feel to it. I’d never actually made a brush from scratch before.
I’m feeling a real need for some good sci-fi lately.
Also why is animating smoke/dust like the hardest thing ever?
"oh yeah, the Thumper. The device that calls the worm. Sand worms are attracted to rhythm and these are used by the Fremen, amongst others, to either take the worms attention away from something or to draw them to the surface so you can ride them! Pretty neat device. I’ve seen a couple of video games that use a thumper. Half-Life 2 comes to mind immediately."
I found this in the library today & took the lil guy home with me! ^.^ I probably won’t get to finish it with all the other reading I have to do but I’m happy to at least peep it :)
