Michael Jackson - The King - Vector by frankwyte81 Michael Jackson - The King - Vector by frankwyte81

*I updated this file for a book I'm working on. I hope you like the changes. I made the jacket glitter actually look like glitter and I added the glove.

I wanted to do a tribute piece to Michael Jackson, the King of Pop.
I grew up on Mike's music and been a fan since. I use to draw his pictures all the time when I was a kid. This man caught a raw deal in the latter stages of his life (child molestation charges, media), the price of fame, some say. He tried to do a lot for people. He will be missed dearly. R.i.P. King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Illustrator CS4, gradient mesh

Thanks Cory. I don't think it's really possible to master the mesh. There are some people doing some nice art with it, but mastering the mesh will take years.

This is beautiful, a wonderful tribute to an awesome human being. I think he was so misunderstood and it's so tragic that the world lost him so early...way too early.
RIP Micheal <3

Me too :) Good memories associated with his music, grew up with his music. The first 8-track tape I ever bought with my own money was his "Off the Wall" album in '79...I was 12 and I must've driven my parents crazy playing it over and over and over..lol My older sister, who is 7 years older than me, had all the Jackson 5 albums and then all Michael's albums. I never, ever believed all the horrible things they said about him in the news. He just didn't have it in his heart to do the things they said he did. :heart:

I see, you're a big fan also. I never believed he committed though crimes neither. Somebody was trying to ruin his reputation and they did to some point. But, good music will never die and great entertainers live forever through us.

Yeah, I reckon someone was trying to ruin him too, and sadly, a lot of people believe that rubbish just because someone's a celebrity...it's like they want to see someone crumble and fall off their pedestal. It might not have ruined his reputation completely, and I think he did an excellent job of bouncing back from all of that...but I think in his heart he was broken because of those lies and because some people believed them, and I believe that ultimately led to all the sleeping pills and concoctions he took to find his peace. His whole life was pretty tragic, really...I hope he's found his peace now, he deserves it. :heart:
