The first half of a set of portraits of The Mighty Boosh— Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, for the uninitiated.
The idea for this set of illustrations was to create two high-contrast pencil portraits in the same style, then digitally add colors/elements that hint at each comedian’s individual comic and personal style. The pieces also pretty obviously reference Noel Fielding’s own paintings, wherein he scribbles bathroom-wall-style over found pictures.
Lineart done in graphite. Colored in Photoshop.
