Andre Benjamin by Joey-Zero Andre Benjamin by Joey-Zero
This will be part of a bigger montage sort of thing I'm doing for a friend, who digs Outkast among others. I'm working on Big Boi as we speak, but I decided to give dre his own vector persona for now. I found the floral-like background on here, in the vector resources. I categorized this as a digital drawing because lately DA's been giving me shit about posting work like this as vector, even though I did the entire thing in .AI VECTOR and the background is an imported jpg... Oh well, whatever, it's still here.

Just doing a bunch of them for the past few years. Each time I do one, I learn a little more. Plus I draw a lot, so that carries over into the vectors as well.

how do you do it?

seriously, you're madly talented.

oh and i'm not sure if you have done it already, but what about a Mos Def portrait? preferably his "The New Danger" cover, but a "Black on Both Sides" could do as well..

sidenote: people really need to take a good listen to "The New Danger".. i've been rocking that album for months, NON-STOP.

"I am a fighter and a lover, I'm the fraky baby daddy, I'm a bad motherfucker." hah... that's just BANGIN'. and the rock joints are RAW.

UGH! hehe.. and "The Beggar" with "The Panties" is pretty much of the "Umi Says" caliber..

Joey-Zero Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, for some reason I haven't really done any Mos portraits yet (except this old school pencil drawing I did back in art school, which is wack compared to the shit I do now).

Hey just wondering if by any chance you know the font used for that Padres t-shirt.

I'm looking for that exact same font (with the cut edges) for months now, but can't get a hand on it ;(

Any help would be greatly appreciated ;)

Most diggable concept. I agree it's kinda lame it falls out of the vector category just because some texture added in Illustrator, oh well fine then.

You sick bastard... to quote Big Boi, this is "cooler than a polar bear's toe nails, aww hell."
Nicely done mi hombre.

P.S.- J Dilla, Little Brother, The Justus League, and Mos Def changed my life.

i think deviantart should categorize things by how much effort you put into something:

lots of effort, moderate effort, little effort, and furry art.

other than that, strong work as usual. less stylization more portrait esque; you do both well so I don't make trouble

I don't know... But like this one for instance [link] was changed from vector to digital drawing because of the background, where the shit is like 98% vector... Oh well.
