Michael Jackson's Fedora by VLAC Michael Jackson's Fedora by VLAC
Wallpaper version : [link]

A follow-up to my "Billie Jean" drawing. I got the idea after watching a MJ show. The moment when he throws his fedora into the crowd at the end of "Billie Jean"really caught my eye. The cameramen were prepared : a shot taken from behind Michael Jackson just as he throws the hat followed by another shot filming the crowd trying to catch it. I loved that moment.

I wanted a cold blue feeling to the whole thing with a little abstract background mixed into the spot light. I also had to distort the perspective a little, because I only wanted to show the hands (no heads) while still being able to see MJ's feet.

I can imagine kids watching this on TV and yelling at the screen to show his shoes, so they could learn how to moonwalk... and it makes me smile, knowing when he was a kid, he did the same thing when he watched James Brown dance...

Awesomely done picture. ^^

This is amazing. The hands reaching up are not only drawn really well but the blue outlines make it feel like they are glowing. The colours you chose are really pretty and even though blue is a cold colour, it doesn't really feel to cold, it feels magical.
Michaels pose makes me sort of see him throwing it and all the hands waving and then suddenly everything freezes like this. It's lovely.

Love it! Very magical feeling with the abstract spot light and the stage detailing on the right hand side.
