Full view :D Thanks!

If I get something out like this, I should work more often in the middle of the night...

Michael Jackson, doing a dance on the Stage of Club 30, singing Smooth Criminal (in my opinion one of the three best Songs Michael ever did)

I started at 10pm and finisched it at 4am.
Lineart about 2 or 2 and a half hours (I repainted a picture of Moonwalker, so I didn't do a sketch)
Colouring, Shading, and fixing any mistake I could find: rest of the time.

Plus: 10 Minutes starring at it and thinking: "Sherlington; how the hell did you do that????? ..... I WANT HIS HAT!!! Damnit!"

Ach Du meine Güte, das hier war mir bisher ja völlig entgangen! :faint: Hast Du super hingekriegt! Ich bin Michaels größter Verehrer und ich trauere nach wie vor um ihn. Smooth Criminal ist in der Tat einer seiner besten Songs, aber ich könnte mich heute nicht mehr entscheiden, welches mein Lieblingslied ist. Früher war es mal Billie Jean.

Bin froh, dass Du jetzt endlich den Smooth Criminal Hut hast. Ich habe leider gar keine MJ Memorabilia, hätte aber auch gern welche, da mir ständig im Kopf rumschwirrt, eines Tages MJ Shows ihm zu Ehren zu machen und auf seine Musik zu tanzen. Im typischen Jackson Stil versteht sich. ;)

An diesem Bild hab ich ne mittlere Ewigkeit gesessen und ich bin heute noch nicht ganz damit zu Frieden, aber es ergibt mittlerweile einen sehr hübschen Wandschmuck in einem passenden Rahmen bei mir im Wohnzimmer. Ich hab es mir über Schlecker (Schleichwerbung ahoi) als Poster ausdrucken lassen und ich muss sagen es gefällt mir sogar noch heute, selbst mit seinen kleinen Fehlern.

Den Hut hab ich auf www.hutshopping.de und ich hab "nur" nen weißen Bogart Hut. Sieht zwar genauso aus, aber Michael hatte einen Fedorra... tja, wenn ich mal ganz viel Geld hab, dann kauf ich mir auch so einen :) Allerdings es ist ein Horror das gute Stück sauber zu halten. Ich hatte es einmal auf und prompt fing es an zu regnen und man sieht jeden kleinen Flecken drauf, aber dennoch bin ich sehr verliebt in diesen Hut.

Ich bin mittlerweile sehr stolz drauf sagen zu können, dass ich Michaels Musik schon gehört hab, bevor er gestorben ist. Oh und ich hab sowas von gelitten als ich die Todesnachricht gelesen hab. Puh... das war wirklich schlimm.

Smooth Criminal gehört zu meinen absoluten Favouriten und bei diesem Song wünsche ich mir immer ich könnte Musik nicht nur hören sondern auch fühlen. Moonwalker hab ich gesehen da muss ich so ungefähr acht Jahre alt gewesen sein, tja und da war es um mich geschehen. Selbst die Coverversion von Alian Ant Farm finde ich echt gut und das Smooth Criminal Riff war das erste was ich sowohl auf dem Keyboard als auch auf der E Gitarre spielen konnte. ... Give in to me war der Zweite Song und mal davon ab, finde ich das das Dangerous Album das Beste von ihm ist und so ganz hab ich den Hype um Thriller eigentlich nie verstanden.

Es freut mich sehr das Dir das Bild gefällt ein Lob von Dir erfreut mich immer sehr :)

Man, Du kennst Dich ja gut aus. :lol: Ich bin ja nun eine ganze Weile älter als Du und kann sagen, ich bin mit Michael aufgewachsen und mitgewachsen. Lange Jahre habe ich ihn beobachtet und bewundert und auch bemitleidet für den hohen Preis, den er zahlen musste im Leben. Oft habe ich mich gefragt, wie lange ein menschliches Wesen so was aushalten kann und mir war lange schon klar, dass Michael kein alter Mann werden würde. Als er dann aber gegangen ist, war ich geschockt und untröstlich und wütend über all die Leute, die ihm nicht geholfen oder sogar geschadet haben. Er hätte uns noch so viel Gutes und Schönes geben können! Die Nachricht von seinem Tod erhielt ich bereits eine halbe Stunde danach. Ich habe es nicht geglaubt. :(

Also so seltsam das klingt aber der gute Michael hat einen ganz erheblichen Betrag zu meiner Erziehung und zu den Träumen die ich in meinem Leben habe geleistet und zwar auf eine recht realistische Art und Weise. Zum Beispiel bin ich ein extremer Skeptiker was die Medien angeht: "Just because you read it in a magazine or seen on the TV screen don't make it factual!" (ich denk mal du weist welcher Song das ist ;) ) Deshalb war das Gefühl das ich nach seiner Todesmeldung hatte auch etwas verwirrend den ich hab mich gefühlt als wäre ein Teil meiner Eltern gestorben und so als ob ich jetzt erwachsen werden müsse :) Sehr seltsam, aber na ja was soll ich sagen ich werd heut immer noch zum Kleinkind wenn man mir ein paar Legosteine in die Hand drückt :)

Heut bin ich mir gar nicht mehr so sicher ob er wirklich tot ist oder nicht, denn es gibt einfach zu viele zu seltsame Dinge rund um seinen Tot. Aber ich steh auf dem Standpunkt: Egal ob tot oder nicht tot, Hauptsache er hat dort wo er jetzt ist seinen Frieden gefunden. :)

I saw Moonwalker the first time, when I was 8... long time ago and scince than I wanted a white hat just like he had in Smooth Criminal. It took me 14 years to get one, but now I'm a prod owner of a white "smooth criminal like" hat, actually it's not a fedora, 'cause I didn't had so much money, but it's a bogart and so it looks the same :)

So, Smooth Criminal is an important part in my Childhood and when ever I think of Michael a voice inside my head quotes the lyric: "You've been hit by, you've been struck by a smooth criminal."

And Smooth Criminal was the first song I coud play on my keyboard and later the first song I learnd to play on gitar (together with give in to me) :D

Aww that's so swwet :)

Smooth Criminal is an important part in my Childhood for me too :) When I was 9, a show about Michael was spend on Tv. It related his life in Neverland and his big tubes. At a time of the show, they talked about Moonwalker and parst Smooth Criminal. I will remember that day all my life. I listened to the music that began and shouted : "Mum ! Who is this man on Tv ? He dances really well!" And for weeks I had the chorus in my head : "Annie are you ok ? So Annie are you ok ? Are you ok Annie ? .... You've been hit by, You've been struck by a smooth criminal"
I the try to redo the choregraphy =D
This would be really funny to see =D

I love the white hat ! On my profile there is a picture where Michael have this hat ;) At the time, I already told at my mother that I wanted one =) I searched for a long time but I did not find it :(
I will try to obtain a white Bogard ;)
Thanks for the info ;) :p

Today I am 17 and I love this song as if for the first time I heard.
Smooth Criminal will always be my favourite song =)

I tried to copy Michael's dancingskills.... jap... and I knew most of the Smooth Criminal movements, but I guess it doesn't look that smoth wehn I dance :D

I found my Bogart on [link] it costs something around 60€, I can't remember the exact price. But you can visit that page, its in french es well (in the middle of the right side on the page you can change languages) and as far as I know they even ship to france if you order a hat. It's a high quality and I'm very proud of my hat :)

Most of the people I know started to like Michael wen they were young, somewhre between the age of 7 and 10. That's kinda funny, isn't it?
