Michael Barnes - Lead Singer of RED

Michael Barnes of the band RED.

I've finally come to a point where I like the photo as a drawing, as well as a picture. I did the drawing originally, but didn't like how it looked so I put it as an overlay picture in Photoshop and matched it with the original picture. Man, oh man, was it in need of touching up! The bridge of his nose needing fixing, as well as the tip, his beard, jaw, neck, scalp, ear, eyes, eyebrows, the works!!! Thankfully, this isn't a dark shaded picture, so erasing and touching up the picture wasn't much of a problem. But it's come to a point where I enjoy it.

Larry Mullen, Jr.

If you would like to purchase a print of this drawing, you can do so here.

Part two of my U2 drawings!!

Larry is the drummer of U2. He is unusual, because he has an Elven look that not many people have.
I think the top drawing looks way more like him than the bottom one does... what do you think?
I spent up to 9 hours on the top drawing, but not nearly as many on the bottom one.

Galadriel - Lady of the Wood

My first Lord of the Rings piece this year!!!
As everyone is getting hyped for the first part of The Hobbit, myself included, I decided to do a LOTR picture in honor of it releasing this year. I actually did it on the 2nd, but since I was - and am - in a U2 mood right now, I have another 2 to 4 U2 drawings to publish. So I might as well publish this one and get it over with. Also, this is the third drawing that I've done in 4 days, so I felt I rushed this one a little bit.

And yes, I've noticed that I'm quite terrible at explaining about the drawing...

Bono - U2

Happy New Year 2012!!

I think I should start this new year off on the right leg. So I decided to do a drawing of one of the worlds most famous singers... Bono from the band U2!!
I've been wanting to do Bono for a long time, but felt that I didn't have enough skill, patience or the right photo to do him until now. I have been listening to U2 the entire day it seems! That is what I try and do if I'm doing a person from a band. I try and listen to the music that the person has created and, usually, it comes out better. I will hopefully be doing the other band members one of these days :)
Usually I get lost while I'm drawing, and this time was like no other. I remember sketching and letting the pencil flow with the music. But that's about it.
In honor of it being New Years Day, and doing a post about U2, I though it would be fitting to post a video of U2's song... uh, "New Years Day"... But this is from their DVD that they shot at Chicago in 2005 (personally, I just like the vocals better in this version).

On another note, I wanted to thank eveyone who has come into contact with my blog. Thanks to you, I've reached 40,000 views!!! That is AMAZING!! Thank you all :)

I think that I need to say thanks to God for giving us another year, to let us glorify him, and advance His kingdom like no other year!! Like Bono says in this song, "I will begin again", and I will live this new year beginning again. Have a great year, taking it a day at a time, not staying in the past, but looking towards the future.
