DJ Qbert by frazbot DJ Qbert by frazbot
DJ Qbert is a huge inspiration to me in my scratching and in my art. Listening to his scratching always gets me pumped up and just excited about life haha. It makes me just want to create, it doesn't matter what, it just makes me want to make things.
I swear he's actually a robot; such precision! hahaha.

I hope to some day have even a fraction of the talent he does when it comes to scratching.

Anyway, hope you guys like it!



Digital portrait of DJ Qbert. PS CS3 and just the stock round brush, adjusting size and hardness. 5 layers.

Dope man! Gotta love qBert! I saw a video on Youtube where he kinda does the drumbs on the turntable. sooooo sick.

frazbot Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2009
yeah yeah! the QFO, I want one of those SO badly! Yeah, he's so good at drumming. If you wanna see another good turntable drummer, youtube "danny the wildchild". Theres an awesome vid of him at Q's octagon :)

Reply
:iconfrazbot:
frazbot Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2009
Yeah it was kinda weird! It kinda seemed like a Promoe featuring looptroop album though haha. Way more pop than their previous stuff, but I still liked it :)
