Anthony Armstrong - Splash

Anthony Armstrong, the guitarist for the band RED

This has to have been one of my most challenging drawings of all time. I actually had to separate the drawing into three different steps, just so I wouldn't get overwhelmed. The first step I did was fill in the black parts.

The second part was to fill in the water that is being splashed around his face.

The the final part is the finished product. But this drawing probably took me a full day of drawing to complete. Which is not normal for me to do. I normally can complete one drawing in a few hours, if I put my mind to it. But this one took soooooo long.

But I'm glad with how it turned out. It's one of Anthony's favorite pictures of himself.

Kevin Young - Lead Singer for Disciple

Kevin Young the lead singer of Disciple.

I actually found myself finding it easier and easier to do drawings the more I draw. Now, I know that that is kind of a "duh" moment, and that drawing does get easier and easier to do with time and practice. But I really felt it with this drawing, which was around number 13 of 16 drawings that I did in 7 days. Yeah, insane, I know. Don't follow my example. Give yourself time and don't cram drawings in for a deadline.
But, I thought that it turned out considering that it only took between 2-3 hours, not 12+ that I did for the Anthony splash drawing (that post to come).
With the energy portrayed in this picture, you'd never know that Kevin is over 40 years-old. In fact, his name is what he looks. Young.

Such a nice guy. Keep it up Kevin!!

Jonathan Jefferson - Guitarist for Nine Lashes

This drawing, the original picture taken by lovely Jeanette Yoder, is one of my favorite Nine Lashes drawings.
Yes, it looks dramatic, or in the words of my grandmother, "He looks angry", I think that this displays great emotion, and concentration in the intricate guitar parts he is playing onstage.

Why this was one of my favorites is because of the little details in the picture. The small shadows of his eyelashes, and how each lash is defined, as well as his two lip rings that stand out against the shadows.

He has really long hair, actually longer than mine, that he whips around onstage. Because of their intense show onstage, his hair is sweat soaked, thus making it gather together into small sections.

Overall, this is the second drawing I'm most excited to show Nine Lashes.
