ghosts of metal

My drawings are made 100% with a wacom, from the sketches to the final piece.



I usually start with a small brush, and sketch the overall shapes:

Then I start with the details and and working with a wider brush:

I do everything in layers so when I start coloring it's very quick. The whole process takes only a couple hours, so it really saves the day!

It´s gorgeous, I love your technique. But without the title I would have never thought of them as ghosts of metal, stoned elderly hippies, maybe. 4

I adore all of these elderly men. With a lot less hair, my husband will be one of them one day. Since I am a devout hater of all things Metallica, I wish it were not on there. And since I am a devout lover of Slayer, I wish they were more in the front. 5

i love how you skirted the issue of band name infringement and also really gave each aging metalhead a different look for each band.
