NAMBLA vs The Colbert Nation

This was a styles and concepts project where we were given a list of famous figures and asked to create a portrait for one of them. I chose to do Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert as a two headed news anchor arguing with itself.

I tried not to overload it with references because I really wanted the faces to be the focus and this is one of the first times I've really played with the color in a face. I'm usually pretty boring when it comes to my color choices so I hope this is a sign of good things to come in the future.

It's done with colored pencils and acrylic washes with the type and comedy central logo done using photoshop.
