Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) WIP by amaryllis-bloom
Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) WIP
So this is the frontman of Alter Bridge to change it up from Shinedown ;)

Haven't spent a lot of time so far so obvs still sketchy and still working out proportions of stuff so that'll be why it might not look right yet... The first time I draw someone is always the hardest.. took ten times to get the eyes and nose to this stage lolz such a pain but it keeps me occupied

Any tips then please don't hesitate to comment and thanks for viewing x)

Besides digital portraits I have really been struggling to get any important stuff done... As in commissions and writing the zombie novel. I'd like to blame psychology for getting in the way and draining my emotional drive lolz (relationships... much fun xP besides sitting with the only two guys in the class so we just take the piss out of everything) That and really important stuff like UCAS...

I think maybe one thing has really motivated me today and that's waking up to find a ton of Twitter emails on my phone and seeing that my most recent portrait of Eric Bass was commented on by the guy himself which was pretty fuckin awesome to finally get noticed by one of Shinedown and a load of people favourited my work on there which was nice to see x) though I'm really tired right now I think that spurred me to get off my ass and wake up my creative side.

I'm actually thinking right now, one day after getting higher priority stuff done I might do a massive digital compilation of Shinedown from them five years ago to now 'cause they've made a lot of progress so that might be a cool project to set myself when I'm bored of everything else.

Besides that I don't have anything new planned and still working on everything I'm still planning to upload so I'm off to watch something and drink Strongbow x) I'll have to remind myself to stick some Metallica on and get to work on my mate's commission tomorrow .. If anyone else has any tips on getting through art block I wouldn't mind hearing em lolz

Thanks for reading and later on guys ;)

Eric Bass of Shinedown 2009 by amaryllis-bloom
Eric Bass of Shinedown 2009
(no idea when the photo I referenced was actually taken but its either 08, 09 or 10)

I could probably spend another couple hours fixing it up but whatever I'll leave it a bit sketchy and stop being a total perfectionist for once xP
Hopefully in the next half hour I'll decide on which ref of James Hetfield to use ...

(no idea when the photo I referenced was actually taken but its either 08, 09 or 10)

Well like everything else I do this is taking way longer than expected but I can't help it apparently xP I've probably done at least five hours of shading by now... and I think I'm seriously going blind now...
I wanna get this one done so I can move onto Metallica's James Hetfield, which took over an hour for me to decide on a few ref photos and still don't know which to use.

Oh yeah and zombie novel going up real soon! x) Thanks for viewing ;)

Pain is all I can think about right now 'cause I have one bitch of a back ache. I've had the odd pain over the past couple years or so when I've carried a ton of stuff to school and every day in front of a computer but never had anything like this. Freakin constant horrible feeling like my shoulder blade badly needs to click and hasn't stopped since friday... So I'm off to the docs soon and I've had the suggestion of getting a massage to fix it but god knows what needs done... Pain pills haven't worked and only succeeded in making me feel sick so that's great xP

So I just about got my homework done and been bedridden besides going to the guitar shop for strings and picks. But seriously why the hell isn't the ibuprofen working dammit! x(

Still got a bunch of stuff on the go... I plan to do some more band portraits at college, finish that one of Eric Bass then hoping to do one of Metallica's James Hetfield if I can ever choose a ref photo -_- spent an hour looking for one and I still haven't decided..

Ahhh kill meh... lolz hopefully next weekend I'll get chatting with my mate about that zombie novel I was going on about for ages and see if I can get a chapter or two up which will be cool 'cause I have been dying to see what people think.

Just an update of what I plan to put up soon.. thanks for reading ;)

I'm 17, a college student, hopefully I'll become a zoologist/wildlife photographer or something like that with a bit of art and writing on the side. I'm driven by music and I owe my sanity to bands of all kinds of rock and metal as well as my older sister, my brother in law,
and my best mate :iconiamawesome66: <-- Check out her art and awesome photography :D

Most of what I'll put on here will be photos of nature and my pets along with Photoshop stuff and local commissions which could possibly be commissions through here maybe...

If you want to follow me on Twitter @ LG_Amaryllis I'll follow back ;)
