This is wonderful!
Metallica are great. I absolutely love the song One. Also their music video for it really touched me. I have no idea why or how, I just have a weird connection to the song. Strange huh!

Anyway, great job! Can I ask what you used for his shirt?

Thanks ^^
& thats an awesome song (& the video also), great live aswell :)

I used 7B-9B pencils & tried to keep it as smooth as possible & then blended some charcoal in over the top to make it smoother (i did that by dabbing charcoal dust on cooton wool & then blending on top of the pencil) I hope that helps ^^

You're welcome! <3

Oh wow, I have never heard of using cotton wool to do that before, it turned out great!!

I also think it is great how you draw quite large! c:

And yes, it did help thankyou!!!
