My roommate and I used to go to every Blue October show possible in college (good times!)  ...We went with some friends on a roadtrip to New Orleans one weekend and 1) saw the band for under a dollar and 2) snapped some amazing pictures as we were in the front row!

She took a picture of Justin, and I was so impressed by the coolness of the composition/lighting that I used it as a guideline for this awesome work:


It's all in oil pastel.  (lots and lots of oil pastel, on a 16x24" stretched canvas.)  I had to mess with the neck of the guitar so that it'd look right, but generally all the frets and such are where they should be...artistic license, you know?  Tongue  My forays into realism are rare, and I really love this one.  Note:  in real life, his hands don't look as weird as they do in the pic.  They do look a little weird, however, because she took the picture as he was playing hard.  Anyways, enough talk!  Hope you like it!
