Mystikal Song Inspired Comic Art Commission

Mystikal lyrics are NSFW!


It's been a while since I've tackled a comic project of this size, and even longer since I've done a fully realized page!  I usually do the pin-ups and character profiles. 


I was a fan of Mystikal's song, Shake It Fast (Clean Version), and I loved his unique gritty way of rapping.  Years have passed since I even remember seeing a music video or picture of the rapper, so I did some research on his pictures and facial expressions.


Of course this piece is for a much bigger fan than me.   So I had to make sure his essence was captured, and that I did justice to the spirit of the lyrics.   I had an outline prepared for me by the commissioner of this project, a good friend of mine.  We laughed together about the roughness of the sketches, but they were more than enough for what I needed.  The placement was there, the angles and desired images all set.  All I had to do was fill in my work, which saved a lot of time.  See it below!

About the Artist

 I would call myself a Jack of all Trades, but mostly because I'm interested in many areas of art if not all!  I graduated with a BFA in Fine Art from the University of North Texas with a focus on Watercolor.   I always had dreams of creative writing, and in 5th grade I wasn't too bad!  Art clearly won out for my attention, but writing will always have a place in my heart!

What better way to write, I say,  than to share a blog, and practice my second love while talking about my first! With that said, I hope you all enjoy my ramblings and please hit me up with any questions.  :D  Contact me!
