The clock's ticking and it's time to go back to my root.

Here is my first attempt on drawing my lifetime favourite band. I was a bit hesitated to start drawing any bands because drawing them = drawing all the band members = multiple drawings. More importantly it'd include drawing all musical instruments..guitars, bass, drumkits..yuck!

But what the heck.. It's just 5 more drawings, isn't it?

So here it is, the collection of my drawing of the high and mighty IRON MAIDEN and Steve Harris got the first shot for an obvious reason. The rest of the beasts are coming soon.

Enjoy and UP THE IRONS!

I just saw Maiden at Summerfest on July 4th. I was right in the pit's front row, and could SEE the sweat dripping down Steve's bass. It was amazing, and so is your art.

Found this pic on Google and thought it was two b&w photos of Steve put together...

...but upon closer inspection, I find that it's a drawing.

Very impressive work here!
