Awesome! :w00t!:

[James and myself share some of the same personal issues, and as a result of that I can relate to a large portion of his lyrics.]
I know exacly what you mean there.

Hm, well, the linework and shadings may not be "good" for you, but I think they make the image way more personal this way. Personal interpretation is always my favourite :) It's relatively "easy" to simply copy how a person looks, but that would make the picture almost meaningless... I like his hair, especially because it reminds me of their albums (for some reason... I'm not extremly familiar with Metallica). Extreme shading is kind of fun, now that I think of it :)
The only thing I'd say is that you might want to have a look at the right side of his face (or the left for the viewer), the lines of his nose and perhaps a bit of shading at the end of his eye might make it a bit more realistic (but that's really just a detail and doesn't bother when you look at it).

This drawing is pretty old now, I was at a very different place back then!
I guess I'll be drawing him again one day...
Thanks for the in-depth comment and compliments.

Looks just like him. I knew who it was before I even saw the title. :)
Shadow-Trooper's avatar
lol, well thanks!

This is damn good! Nice linework and shading.
Shadow-Trooper's avatar
Thanks, though you pointed out just the things I'm not really happy with, lol.

I wouldn't worry so much about the technicalities. You captured his look - that's James, all right (and as far as I'm concerned in his better days ;) ). God, I was crazy about them.
Shadow-Trooper's avatar
Why was? They're still an incredible band (:
Thanks for faving it!

I stopped listening to them after 'St. Anger' and 'Some Kind of Monster'. I saw them twice and I'd like to see them again, but good part of my anger has melted, new bands have emerged and now I find inspiration elsewhere. Nevertheless, I still believe that James has it somewhere in him. I just wish he trusted himself more (and stopped killing bears and buffalo for fun :disbelief:).
