Portrait09-Ed Sheeran(colourful music)

User rating

4.60 out of 5

I chose Ed Sheeran because I admire his ability to paint with music using simply an acoustic guitar. In his interview he said "All my songs have colours."This inspired me and I wanted to create a colourful portrait that reflects his musical style. I painted this digital portrait with Photoshop. I created a stylised cartoon version of Ed Sheeran to add an arty feel that Ed said he quite likes. I added flowing colours to the guitar, this gives away his style immediately and adds a vital visual impact to the portrait.It also enhances the lovely details on Ed's guitar. To add final touch, I added colourful musical notes to the side of the CD sleeve and used rainbow-coloured fonts.
