I actually like that idea! Objects and other things that represent Michael symbolizes him. I love the thought of sunflowers and elephants 🥰
Thanks! Do you have any other thoughts? Like other than sunflowers and elephants, any other images come to mind?

Last night I drew a peace dove for my brother for his birthday and I feel like it also reminds me of Michael...

That is so beautiful! :love:

His favorite number was 7, I believe it was considered lucky to him...red was one of his favorite colors, maybe have some contrasts with red elements, some metallic colors like gold/silver perhaps? He loved Peter Pan, but his favorite was Tinkerbell lol

Lol getting my ideas and thoughts figured out here lol

Thank you so much! I was pretty proud of it. I am very new to pastels, so this has been a fun thing to explore!

These are all great ideas!! Thank you :) I love the idea of incorporating these things in a subtle way. Like, maybe 7 sunflowers, maybe an elephant colored with hues of red and gold? could be really cool!

Pastels are fun to work with!

I love that idea! Now it's having me think of a piece to do!

I love the portrait ideas don’t get me wrong lol, I think doing like a collage mural of things he loved and his mystique is a great idea. I’ve had thoughts of sunflowers, maybe a spin on the mask on the Dangerous album cover! 🤔

OH yes! I absolutely have a goal of doing the Dangerous cover sometime! I started it once a long time ago and it was really hard (of course). But maybe some elements of it! It's amazing how complex that cover is. It's so gorgeous. I love the idea of some take on it :)

@AChanceToDance hope you don't mind me tagging you here! I mentioned in the chat last week that I was working on another MJ portrait and you said you'd like to see it when it's done :)

I actually finished this a day or so after that but forgot to post it. I basically just do these for me so I don't share them much. I included two photos of it though because I feel like I can't really capture the warmth and brightness of it. The colors in person are really bold and warm, but that's not clear to me in these. Oh well.

Anyway I hope it's obvious which picture this is inspired by! Haha it's not perfect by any means, but I am pretty happy with it (the critical voice in me wants to point out all its flaws but I'm intentionally holding back lol).
