Week 12 - JEM! by Randy Ostridge

Another great image from Randy... The JEM! group on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, a great image based on one of my favorite Glee covers.  If you've never seen it, check it out.

"This image is for a weekly theme over at the Illustrious Bits sketch group.

When the theme of Jem came up for the sketch group, I immediately thought about doing a magazine cover of the band. The only music magazine I know is Rolling Stone, so I sorted through some of the their covers. I took inspiration from this Glee cover (my wife loves Glee):


It worked because it had just the right number of characters, and I could easily see Jem as the central figure. Anywho, it may have been a little ambitious in the end, as I kind of ran out of steam during the colouring process. But it was still pretty fun.

Lineart is pencil on paper, inked with markers. Coloured in Photoshop."
