Jeremy Dunn - Nine Lashes (before)

Jeremy Dunn - The Lead singer of the band Nine Lashes.

I have recently fallen in love with this newer band. They just got signed with Tooth and Nail records, and are releasing thir first 'offical' album. Guess who got them hooked up with T&N?? Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch!! Haha, trust Trevor to find a diamond in the rough.
Anyway, this is the lead singer of the five member band. For the past week I've been wanting to draw him, but haven't been anywhere that is sutible for drawing. I was in Calgary for a chruch conference for five days, and then I got sick (almost better!), so just now have I been able to do him.
I still need to add more shading to the darkest parts of his face, but I really like how his hair turned out! I posted this on Nine Lashes page on Facebook and this is what they said. "This is amazing! Great work!"
Haha, how can a band like them not be nice about it?!

Oh, and I will be doing Edmund soon, JesusMySavior :)

This is the second half of my Commissions.
The top drawing is of Peggy's Cove, in Halifax. The middle is of United Grain Elevators (prairie), and the bottom drawing is for my pastor's, spiritual father (the man who helped him on his spiritual journey).

The hardest part was the grass in the Grain picture. I had to draw it 2 full times! I have no idea how to draw it, but I think it will have to do.

Commissions, Part 1

 Mountains with Lake and Wood

Niagara Falls and The Maid of the Mist
If you would like to purchase a print of this drawing, you can do so here.

I got commissioned by my pastor and his wife to do drawings for the 6 head members of Church of the Nations. I was given 6 pictures of Canadian places or things. I don't know what mountain the top drawing is, but it has a name. I just can't remember it. The same thing with the second drawing, but the third drawing is Niagara Falls.

I had never drawn landscapes before, so this was a new experience for me. It took me quite a while to get the hang of trees, but the ended up working out.

Trevor McNevan - Signed

Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch (TFK).

This is one of two pieces of art that Trevor had the choice of taking home. It was either this drawing or this painting. He choose the painting (I would've too, if I were him), so he signed this drawing. Eldra was happy that he choose the painting instead of this drawing, because the drawing was more recent.  I loved both, so letting go of one of them was kind of hard, but easy at the same time. I mean, COME ON. It's TREVOR!! Lol.
He, like everyone we met on the MapleNoise tour was SUPER nice!!! An amazing person!!

Ty Dietzler - Signed Drawing

Ty Dietzler of Thousand Foot Krutch.

This is a drawing I did in 2010, but I got to show it to Ty this past September along with this one.
He had no choice but to take the other drawing because there was no room for him to sign it (without signing his cheek). So I decided to give Ty the other drawing, and ask him to sign this one, which of course he did :) He is such a nice guy!!

Joel Bruyere - Bass Player for Thousand Foot Krutch

Joel Bruyere from TFK (Thousand Foot Krutch)

I think these drawings surprised Joel when I showed them to him. The top one is the one he decided to take, while the bottom one is the one he signed for me.
I can see why he would take the top drawing as opposed to the bottom one. The shading is darker, giving him more depth to his face, while the bottom one has minimal shading. The one thing I do remember drawing on the lower drawing is his mouth. I had such a hard time drawing it!! I probably drew it 5 times before getting it to a point where I was satisfied with it. Also the beard. I had difficulty drawing that.

I think he was happy with the drawing, or at least I'm hoping he's happy with it >_> :)

Thank you so much Joel, for the kind words, time and ability to put up with me ;)
