Tool-Pastel study by TrevorGrove Tool-Pastel study by TrevorGrove
This was an assignment in my art class...it was meant to be a perspective study...and I suppose it has some decent perspective elements, but it certainly is nothing astounding for me in that respect

What I do really love about it is the opportunity it gave me to use oil pastels...god do I love these things. I had a lot of fun rendering this picture, and I hope that shows.

thanks to daxxon [link] my pal Dan, who gave me the idea of drawing TOOL, since he knew I loved their music, and saw I was bored with the project... that made it all the more enjoyable...gave me an opportunity to listen to "Push It" while I drew.

enjoy folks,
Trev

Considering the song choice during rendering I would half expect a slightly more angry vibe to this, haha. Awesome work though man.

I JUST got to see Maynard last night, actually. He's touring the states right now with Puscifer and, wow...it was an incredible show. One of my favorites. Always anxious to see what he cooks up.

Oh, no, no. I'm sorry, Gemma, I said that wrong. I just meant I got to see him live in concert again, on his Puscifer tour. He's an amazing performer, and creative thinker. I'm always super inspired by him. The band was very tight too. They rocked the house down. :)

I've been wanting to do a little caricature sculpture of MJK. I'll have to do that sometime soon.
