Project Tommy Shirt design by Nephtis Project Tommy Shirt design by Nephtis
This is 'Project Tommy'
a.k.a.
'Tommy Henriksen* as a vampire wearing aviator-style sunglasses. Adding his guitar would be great!'

*Hope this is the right spelling? I found so many different versions....
-------------------------------------------------------

I've had it on hold for some time now.

Sparky asked me back in April, to do a t-Shirt design for her to wear to a concert but since it was planned to be a surprise I promised to hold it back until she had a chance to wear it for him to see.

Several challenges in this for me taht I was quiet nervous about when she first asked!

For once, this is the first time I did draw a guitar - any of you playing themselves and familiar with this model will notice some minor and one very obvious mistake.

But overall I think I learned quiet a few things. One has to try new things every once in a while.

And it was a change to adjust a different face to my style and still hope he'd be recognizable while keeping things simple enough to print well.
Believe me having him wear glasses while still trying to work out his eyes was quiet a challenge in itself until I found a pose that worked.

Lots of references (and a detailed description setting the mood) were provided by Sparky herself and I hope I did it justice even if I decided to do just one -easy- tattoo.

Those tattoed rockers are really making things difficult for us fan artists!

Anyway, hope you like it!

Thanks! I enjoyed doing it, though honestly I have to admit I wouldn't have thought of it myself if it had not been a request.

Heck yes! He wins for facial expressions during a show & for being a really cool guy off stage.

On stage I'd call him really bouncy & hyper... off stage no idea ;)

BTW, have you seen Ryan and his steampunk goggles? I nearly fell off my chair when I saw that :P

Hm, it's Ryan's Facebook page,you may have to "friend" him to see it. [link]

probably has his settings on 'just friends' - but I feel weird friending people I don't know. Well, I guess I can live without seeing it.

I posted a video where you can see it.
But do friend him it's a fan page basically nothing private. I always check such things before sending a request.

Nope, can't. It says he has already reached the limit of maximum friends... He must be popular :D

Hey Alice just said the word "Steampunk" on the radio! That station is always in tune with my brain I swear it's creepy! LOL! :D
