Project Elvis #2

The first step is to scan some pictures of a standing Elvis. On that scan i put on lines for the proportions that i can transfer to the photos of my model and adjust it in Photoshop.

Project Elvis #1

For a while i'm thinking about a big painting, 80 x 120 cm, of 3 x Elvis. I don't want to use 3 pictures from books or the net but make photographs of a model in different positions. After that i'll have to find pictures of Elvis clothing from the fifties, sixties and seventies to paint on my models.

Elvis 24, 1970

I thought it would be fun to make a small painting. While working on this portrait i got the idea for the "Elvis 24" series.
