Commissioned for Kerrang! Magazine's "10 Reasons Why 2013 Is Gonna Rock!" article in the new year issue.
They decided to split up the drawings for the actual article, but I thought this version would look better in my gallery (also Tony Iommi doesn't appear in the magazine).
A few of the artists were rather difficult to draw in this form while keeping the likeness, Bruce Dickinson, Hayley Williams, M Shadows and Trent Reznor in particular. It was also a bit of a mission to find out which photos were recent enough. So hope I did okay in the end!
From left to right:
Front Row - Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), James Hetfield (Metallica), Kerry King (Slayer)
Second Row - Tony Iommi and Ozzy Osbourne (Black Sabbath), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails)
