Reckless Abandon by Ranman311 Reckless Abandon by Ranman311
Tom DeLonge. Guitarist/Singer from Blink-182, Box Car Racer, and now Angels & Airwaves.

I drew the original pencils for this back in 2004. It was a gift for my girl at the time. This piece is based off a photo from the 2003-04 Blink-182 era when Tom first started using his signature Gibson.

A few weeks ago I rediscovered the drawing because luckily I scanned it before I gave it away. I decided to toy around with the scan for a while. The result is a picture enhanced with a lot more life and color I feel.

Enjoy!

to be honest, i didn't use many.. it mostly looks that way because of how i originally drew it. once i got it into photoshop, i first raised the contrast to get my pencils darker, then blurred edges. after that, i believe i used "paint daubs" to smooth everything out so it didn't look so pencily. from there i colored each individual part with the hue/saturation slider. finally, after a few minor touch-ups, i threw together a quick background and added a light source in the upper-left corner.

i might post the original pencils soon to show the comparison
