Perfect Gentlemen by Flying-Glove Perfect Gentlemen by Flying-Glove
...well, when they're not off destroying hotel rooms, that is. But let's face it, they wouldn't be nearly as lovable if they weren't also totally insane!

Based on this photoset of the Who in formal dress, around 1967. [link]

I realize now that this is the second picture I've posted of Keith in this outfit. The first was for a commission I did last winter, before I was a fan of the Who. (There was such a time? It seems so hard to believe now...) All I can say is, wow, I've improved. :D

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to listen to Quadrophenia for the eleven millionth time...

Certainly is!

Hey but I have a question regarding this picture. It looks great it really does! But how come Roberts skin is so tanned? :c

Thanks! And there's nobody in this picture named Robert, but if you're talking about Roger, he is a bit more tan than the others in real life, but I do traditional art and my only tan marker is quite a bit darker than my peach tone I used for the other three. So he came out looking quite tan.

Thank you so much!

Quadrophenia is a fantastic album. The music matches the emotional qualities of the lyrics so well, the songs are so complex, and it's so intensely relatable. I'd definitely say it's one of my favorite albums of all time.

I almost feel you made this for me. ;p But I know it's your own ambition. I really like the paint! (And uh, Keith, heh :blush:)

Aww, really? Oh, thank you! I drew it for everyone who loves the Who (including me, hahahaha)

Thanks! The paint drips and splatters were a last-minute addition, it seems like people think they were a good idea. :D

And Keith is always a darling, hahahahaha~ Cute enough to get away with anything, he was. :D

Darling Oh my~ I am shocked to see the background on this it's perfect!
And that you submitted it :heart:

The colors also turned out fantastic, did you have to edit it? Or was the scanner also nice to you? :D

:iconflying-glove:
Flying-Glove Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012   Traditional Artist
Oh, thank you! Yeah, I thought that without a background it was really lacking something. It was far too plain and dull. So I thought the paint drips and splatters would be a good way to give it some of the ridiculous Who energy.

I edited the hell out of this one, hahahaha. I found a free online photo editor and just went to town. :D

mae-dae Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012  Student Artist
Yes exactly! :D And you did that with markers? Because it looks so much like paint it's amazing~

HAHA oh no I'm sorry I thought the scanner was super nice xD
Well it was worth the effort because it looks fab!

Flying-Glove Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012   Traditional Artist
Thank you so much! Yeah, it's just markers. :D

The scanner is nice, but it really dulled out the colors. So that's what I used the editor for. That and cleaning up erasure marks.

You're amazing seriously I don't know how that's possible~

Oh yeah scanners can tend to do that, but I'm glad you found an editor :D
The one I really liked and used to use has shut down unfortunately
Well I don't see any eraser marks so you did a great job love <3

Aww, really? I just go really fast so that it all blends before it dries.

I used [link] to do this.
