As Tall As Lions

For those of you who don't know, one of my favorite bands is As Tall As Lions. You can listen to some of their stuff HERE. I was lucky enough to watch them perform back in the summer of 08.
Unfortunately a few months ago they announced that they were breaking up and are currently doing a farewell tour . So I pay my tribute to them the best way I know how- by painting their portraits.

So Cheers to a great band with great music! Best wishes to Julio, Saen, Cliff and Dan on their future projects!

Maybe this image would be more striking with a more obvious difference in size between the two guys in the middle. Dare I say... also the guy in the front even bigger? These are possible suggestions to make it stronger but I do think that the colors you've chosen and your comp hold it up well. Not sure if you did this purposely, but I also liked that you had these vertical lines in the back, that reminded me of the name of the band. Your style looks great with these kinds of images-- when they leave a generous amount of "negative space." Interested in seeing you combine your latest sketchbook entry with this piece. Can they possibly make a baby? I'm curious...
