This heart only beats for you. by AnndreaLeeann This heart only beats for you. by AnndreaLeeann
Title (c) Leathermouth "Bodysnatchersforever"


I am trying to get out of my slump by drawing the second sexiest man alive Frank Iero :D
He is the guitarist for My Chemical Romance and the singer of Leathermouth and is one of my most favorite human beings that I do not know personally.
I love this picture of him back in the "revenge" era... and too I have yet to draw a single of Frank that I like so of course it's time I do one.

Charcoal 6B+white. I did not pick very good paper to do this with, it's coming apart and flaking off and doesn't look as crisp as I had hoped. Note to self: Drawing paper doesn't like charcoal and repeated smudging with a blender. Noted for next time haha.

I am in love with this piece. The attention to detail is stunning and the use of shading makes this drawing so close to a real photograph it's easy to mistake it. The expression on his face is amazingly realistic. The way it is drawn, there is an illusion of highlights in the eyes and shine on the hair and piercings. Beautifully done, and a breathtaking piece. I look forward to seeing other deviations by this artists. My one suggestion is on the right eye, the farthest line of the "X" on his eye seems bit off. You truley have talent.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

When I first saw the image in mi phone i thought it was a picture, the moment I open it in my laptop I was absoloutly susprised to see it was a drawing. I must say this is a really impressive one. The detail is so beautifly worked just like the zones of lights and shadows.... what can I say, it's perfectly worked.
I'm abslolute stunned by the shadows, I know this part is what make drawings come to life, I beleive you did an amazing work here. The only thing that I will say was kind of lazy is the eyes. The X's look kind of funny with the eyebrows. Probably a bit more would had helped. But I absoloutly love this pece!!
