Brief history of the phenomenal Bob Marley

Full name Robert Nesta Marley born 6 February 1945 Died 11 May 1981
He was a Jamaican Singer, a committed Rastafari and a songwriter who gained International recognition and became an icon both internationally and culturally. He blends reggae, ska and rocksteady in his style of music. In 1977 the release of the album Exodus established his worldwide reputation and ranked him one of the world's best selling artists of all time, with sales of more than 75 million records. One of his greatest hits album Legend released in 1984, three years after Marley died was still the best-selling reggae album of all time.
P.S I still listen to his album Legend

Here are some of his quotes
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."

"love the life you live. live the life you love"

"The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for."

Highlights of the process

First Outlinewith pencil and the some light shading

Second stage made more progress he's complexion a fair but the dark shades around his face and his hair will help bring out the complexion. As you can see the shading technique is hatch and crosshatch.

More Progress and you the dark shades around his face is beginning to make his face pop out

Now to get the dark part such as the hair I add scribbling to even the shadesIMG_20170127_165533.jpg

And Finally just add a light background shade and there we have the final result as seen above
