b.i.g. last supper by nicktheartisticfreak b.i.g. last supper by nicktheartisticfreak
commission work. 4 feet wide, acrylic.

concept: the client's favorite rap artist, the notorious b.i.g. aka "biggie" supplants jesus in a recreation of leonardo's famous last supper.

this took me sooo long, and i'm not entirely happy with it. but it makes me laugh. i have never painted people before, or on such a large scale. so this was a trip and a half.

doing this painting gave me some insight to the composition that leonardo used. it is flawless. the only reason this looks good is because leonardo painted the layout for me.. in a way. either way i need to work on my painting a lot more.

This is a very interesting piece. Although I would have liked to have seen Puffy, Mase, Kim and other East Coast rappers as the saints, lol. Oh well, not my commission and not my art. Either way this piece is very remarkable :+fav:

i never could get a handle on painting... i bought a set of oils but its hopeless.... have you tried oils before? i dunno what the difference is between acrylics and oils...not price anymore thats for sure. how come blue is $13.99 and green is $6.99? do they crush up rare east indian sapphires guarded by cyclops for the damn paint? why do they think artists have the money.......

Awesome, so that's a good format? There's going to be a few pages where you can just go crazy. These will be more later in the story though, when B starts descending though. (:

good stuff. when you have enough pages written up, i can do a rough storyboard to make sure we are on the same page. (pun unavoidable)
