A rough sketch of Elvis in the 50's. I'm not satisfied with the shirt. I'll have to dive into Elvis' closet (books) once more to look for something else. Maybe also a jacket with a bit more color.

I made a quick rough sketch of the "Seventies Elvis" with the outfit i decided on earlier. I need to make some more studies, light, folds and creases and the puffy sleeves.
I made a new montage in Photoshop. The heads are the ones i'm going to use. The skin colors are not OK but that doesn't matter for the montage.

These clothes i want to use for the "Seventies Elvis".
Elvis wore this shirt and belt in 1970 during rehearsals for the movie "That's the way it is".
Today i made some pictures for a temporary lay-out of the painting.I made a very quick montage, just to see what it looks like. The clothes are not the clothes i'm going to use on the painting, they are from the different periods. The heads are also not definitive. The proportions are o.k. The background is one of the pictures of Gracelend i took in 2007.
The next step wil be to find pictures of the Elvis heads and clothes i do want to use.
