The Doobie Brothers



I've been sitting on this one for a while now. It wasn't quite finished, and before I could go back to it I moved ahead on other projects. I finished it up today though, and I'm pretty pleased with the result. My inspiration for the piece came from the Doobie's origin as a biker band. I also threw some nautical themed tattoo flash on the wall, as a reference to J. D. Ryznar and Hunter D. Stair's hilarious Yacht Rock shorts.

Where do I start? The woman's face is awesome. The tattoos are very well executed and the concept is perfect for the band. I also like the texture and color of the hair contrasted with the outline. You might be able to tell that I like this poster.
