Nice portrait.

Too bad the guy is/was a member of an organized criminal gang. Also involved in other wonderful endeavors like prostitution and thievery. Do you not think of stuff like that when you agreed to do this? Isn't there anybody else out of 6.5 billion people who might be more worthy of being painted than this sack of you-know-what?

What were you thinking?

lindsey said...

ha logan used to live at Pacific Electric Lofts! the roof is amazing oh and so is your painting

Tracey L. Harris said...

I love this idea! Your portrait is great, as usual. (I know your work through the Portrait Society) So, are you related to the R.C. who painted Robert Plant & Alison Krause? I'd love to see that painting, too. They're my reason for watching the Grammys this year.

Cassiemarie said...

I think you captured his attitude/personality perfectly. I love how some people think painters must love/agree with everything they paint. It's not like you painted snoop with a halo hugging small children! Anyways, I'll get off my soapbox, it's a nice painting!

Dan Corey said...

Was this from life? either way its off the heezy for sheezy.

Antti Rautiola said...

Amazing portrait.
Bar has just went a bit higher i suppose :)

lipking said...

Thanks Cassie, I went back and forth on the halo/children thing for a while.

My dad did the Robert Plant and Alison Krauss piece, you can see it here

The exhibit is open Feb 3rd - 8th 1-7pm at Pacific Electric Lofts, corner of 6th and Main Los Angeles CA 90014

Beautiful temperature shifts, and of course, drawing and values.

Julie said...

That there is the gen-yew-wine article, Jerelizzle.

Although you totally should have done the halo thing. That warm light bouncing off his braids would have been so fly.

Gabriel Hunt draws sometimes said...

Perfect likeness, and the color choice looks like nothing you've done before. You've really pushed yourself.

Bryan said...

Incredible! You've endowed Snoop with an almost mystical quality!

adebanji said...

WOH WOH WOH!! That is a living piece!!!


Jess said...

Wow you met the wonder girls. so lucky.

Daniel Peci said...

Hmm..your painting far exceeds the 'original'.

Dillon Thompson said...

You are living the dream. Snoop wanted to be a "M.F." hustler. It looks like he just became immortalized. Amazing portrait.

Kristy Gordon said...
