Artist Busts String. Crashes!

Banjo neck before improvements

Banjo neck WIP crash!

Yikes! Banjo Bust in WIP action!

Just had this in Illustrator.
Created stylized faded flamed frets – solid peach to translucent cinnamon, outlined for perspective, distance and torque. And a double-lined fire red and black pot edge on old Dixieland Jazz Player’s Banjo neck.
Busted a string! Crashed. I LIKED what I had going in this funky Jazz piece!!
Now ( after telling my story – kinda sucked outta the mood) gotta recreate it. Hope I can. Good news is that since I already did once, and knowing exactly what I want will make it go faster! Ok lets go! Stay tuned folks!
Second attempt to reintroduce  Banjo Pot Lid and Neck , after crash.
image, illustration fix from Photoshop to illustrator back.

Player so Hot Banjo catches fire!

Crisp lines of Banjo Pot Lid and Neck backed off to let layers underneath show through again. Too much still remains.Draws just a bit too much attention.  I prefer the previous layers better.
