Drawing of Gene
Posted on 07/19/2011I just wanted to share how much KISS has inspired me. Since I first discovered them in the 70s, KISS has always been a part of my life. Being an artist by trade, I have always wanted to draw large portraits of the guys. I don't know why it has taken me so long to do this. Maybe it was intimidation in wanted to do it right. Anyway, I just finished the first in what will be a series of drawings. I started this with a portrait of Gene. Paul is next and is a big one for me because he's an artist as well and I love and respect his work. I'll be sure to post my portrait of Paul and I hope he likes it! I also hope Gene like this drawing. I have over 100 hours in its completion. It's 30"x40" on illustration board, and is done entirely with graphite pencils, except for the eyes in his dragon boots. I'm proud to show you my drawing "God Of Thunder". Thanks guys for all the enjoyment you have given me and mostly for the inspiration. P.S. Paul, if you would like to see more of my work, let me know and I'll send you the link to my website. I'm not here to promote myself but I would relish the chance to share my work with an artist of your caliber. Thank you!
