Basic info


:pointr: size: A3 [2 x A4]
:pointr: media: Koh-I-Noor pencils [H-8B], regular eraser, kneaded eraser, a blending stump
:pointr: time: I swear, something about 75 hours ;__;


About the subject


The upper row from left: Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, Anthony Kiedis of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Ben Kowalewicz of Billy Talent.
The lower row: Sully Erna of Godsmack, Brian Molko of Placebo, Shaun Morgan of Seether, Jared Leto of 30 Seconds To Mars.

8 guys, 8 different personalities, 8 different voices, 8 different bands, 8 different faces of rock.
They give/used to give me eargasms every time I listen[ed] to the music they create with their bands. Each of them enchanted me with his voice at some point of my life. I'm aware that some of them are criticised/play worse music now, but... I don't care, they had a huge impact on my music taste. 4 of them come from U.S., 2 from Canada, 1 from RPA and 1 from U.K. I definitely love ~English music :> I've seen 3 of them live: Jared twice, Anthony once and Brian once. I was supposed to go to Billy Talent show a few days ago, but the concert had been canceled :(

Most of these photos aren't up-to-day [Kurt's especially... :P], but it was bloody hard to find the photos that would fit, especially the sitting ones. It took me the entire day to find what I was looking for, and I'm still not satisfied.
Sully, Brian, Shaun and Chad - why so serious? Well, I didn't want to create too sad a drawing, thus I exchanged the faces of Jared and Anthony - the bodies are theirs, but the reference photos for their faces are different from the original pictures.

I've been thinking about portraying Kurt from a different photo, 'cause his eyes aren't visible [as the rest of the vocalists], but as he's not among the living anymore, may he wear his cool glasses in order to stand out. I know some time ago I was threatening I would never draw Jared again. So, this is the last time for real.


About the drawing itself


This gave me a bunch of severe headaches!
First of all, the span of creating this drawing was unbelievable and unbearable for me: I started in July 2012, on Dec 31st, 2012 it was finished in 99%. Then I had a break in January [examsexamsexams]; in February I discovered that the feet of standing guys - the very last thing that left to draw - wouldn't fit! So I had to erase all area below the coach and drew another part of the coach instead. MADNESS. Obviously the paper started to misbehave.
It also acted oddly when I was shading the background, it became so uneven that I decided to blend it with the blending stump.

Special thanks go to Sully and Shaun for their frigging tattoos; to Kurt for his fancy coat; to Jared, Anthony and Ben for their not complicated at all facial expressions and to Shaun for his checked shirt. You made drawing this group portrait far easier! :sarcasm:

I tried to adjust their heights as well. The tallest guy is Shaun [188cm], but he's sitting. The next tallest guy is Chad [185cm], therefore he is the biggest in the upper row. Kurt and Anthony = 175cm, whereas Ben is 170cm. Sully and Brian measures the least [165 & 168... :giggle:], but they're sitting, so good for them =P Jared with 177cm is in the middle of all these guys.


It was supposed to look different. It's funny how we imagine an outcome of creating process and then it turns out completely different :lol:
It's the first drawing posted this year, the first after 2 months of not posting anything... so I hope you like it! :faint:

I love this drawing, it's incredible my dear, but I have one tiny problem with it. I don't think Kurt would pose in a photo with Chad. lol.

I think he would... but with "the old Chad", I mean Chad before ~2002 :D Nickelback used to play rock and hard rock between 1996-2002, it was amazing, loud, but then they unfortunately started mixing pop with rock, which sucks... I listened their newest album once or twice and that's all.

Strasznie spodobał mi się ten pomysł. Moi ulubieni artyści są z różnych dekad i jeśli będę rysować chociaż w połowie tak realistycznie jak ty, spróbuję narysować ich razem... wszystkich jako młodych... :DD Nie bierz tego jako kradzież pomysłu, moich prac i tak prawie nikt nie ogląda oprócz kilku znajomych i rodziny, hahaha. :D

Dziękuję ślicznie, cieszę się, że podoba Ci się ten rysunek :aww:
Oczywiście, że nie będę uważała tego za kradzież!Gdybyś zrobiła kopię tej pracy i nie podpisała, że pomysł był mój, to by była kradzież :lol: A tak to nie :) Życzę powodzenia, jeśli kiedyś spróbujesz :)
