Aerosmith Sketch by James Bennett

One of the first full color oil paintings I ever attempted as a young teenager was a portrait of Steven Tyler. I thought that our hairstyles were similar, which tells you how long ago that was.


My sons were introduced to "Guitar Hero" this past Christmas, and it became an instant hit, which made it understandable to me why the entire world agreed. So when I found out that the next game would be focused on one of my all time favorites, I wanted to try and capture the "Aerosmith" that I knew so well. This is my finished sketch, which I will transfer to board, and hopefully, transfer the energy.
