Elvis in pencil and airbrush, update I

When i make a portrait drawing, I usualy start with the face. This time i decided to start with the Jacket because it's the biggest part of the drawing. I have to go over it once more and the it's time for the cap and face :-) 

Elvis in pencil and airbrush

A while back i found a example of a drawing, perfectly drawn with pencil and colored with airbrush. It looked like the hand colores photos from the fourties and fifties.
I'm going to give it a try, the size is  40 x 50 cm on Bristol board.
It will take me a while to finish the drawing, the outlines are finished (above).
I'll place regular updates on this blog and on Facebook.

I hope i don't ruin my drawing when i apply the paint with the Airbrush :-)
