exactly 10 years ago today, on 29th of April 2006, T. Bangalter & G.M. de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk debuted with their pyramid setup for the first time on Coachella and changed the landscape of electronic music forever. I think that this was some kind of blessing and I lowkey hope that they will come back this/next year with 20 years of Alive tour (1997 - 2007 - 2017)
PHEW! This took a long time and is by far the most complex piece I’ve done in this coloring style. Daft Punk is my fav band of all time (I even have them tattooed on me.) yet I never draw them. This is because of two things I dread: the symmetry of their helmets and the chrome coloring. I never thought I’d be able to tackle it. But then I thought “Heck, I’ll just do it my way” - and it kinda sorta worked! It was SO fun coloring their helmets. I listened a lot to podcasts about the first century in Hollywood. I think all the talk about LSD usage rubbed off on this piece, hah.
I wanna dedicate this to 100ottersonanaeroplane because she loves Daft Punk as well, and I want her to get better asap.
