Work In Progress (O Brother...)

So this is the first of what will be a semi-, somewhat, probably-not-at-all frequent series of blogposts showing work in progress. I will show various phases of the work, from initial sketches, to a bit of ink, roughing out ideas etc. The first post is the next installment of my Coen Brothers trilogy of paintings (following the already completed Lebowski painting). Got the rough pencil down and you can see some of the ink around the eyes. I usually start with the eyes because if you f- them up you might as well just start over. Maybe I will post another shot of this further along.

Been messing around with adding type and textures into my paintings. Adding in some of my design background. 

Here is the original painting:

And Below is the painting with added textures and typography:

Which one do you like better? The raw painting or the one with added texture and type?
