Thank you very much (:

"I am awaiting the sunrise
Gazing modestly through the coldest morning
Once it came you lied
Embracing us over autumn's proud treetops

I stand motionless
In a parade of falling rain
Your voice I cannot hear
As I am falling again

Devotion eludes
And in sadness I lumber
In my own ashes I am standing without a soul
She wept and whispered: "I know..."

We walked into the night
Am I to bid you farewell?

Why can't you see that I try
When every tear I shed
Is for you?"

Weird that you've chosen one of their most gentle songs for a picture that depicts him screaming!
Painting-My-Horror's avatar
Ah yes, you're right, I should chose another song for this drawing... But ... ehh ... that was to prove that M.A is talented ! ( or I didn't think at all because I'm stupid. :) )

You are not stupid, Mr. Å is very talented. Amazingly talented, really. My favorite musician by far!
BTW this picture was taken during The Baying of the Hounds, so I guess:

"Lined up verses on dead skin
the tainted lips of a stranger
resting upon hers"

I send the message too quikly. -_-'
All that to say that Akerfeldt is a great artist, and you drew his face expression very well.

this picture is awesome
opeth is awesome.
the way he's screaming into the mic is fuckin extreme

"Staining the soil, midst of stillness
Beloved fraternity to an end
Red eyes probe the scene
All the same
Stilted for the beholder
Depravity from the core
Handcarved death in stoneladen aisles"

Hell yeah, Godhead's Lament. Such an awesome song.
Can't wait to see them live again this August!

Wonderful work. Maybe you should switch to larger formats and better paper. Just give it a try, free your hand and see what happens. ;)
Shadow-Trooper's avatar
Thank you!
Well that's just what I'm doing. I'm working on another portrait, on fabriano paper and A3 format. It's so much easier to draw that way. I guess I should keep better paper at home all the time for those spontaneous portraits.
That's really impressing.

woaaah, it's fantastic!!! His voice is soo sexy, don't you think so? :XD: Anyways, I love this pic :heart: :+fav:
Shadow-Trooper's avatar
Thanks. And yes, while I won't phrase myself that way, I'd say I adore his voice. Best metal singer around no doubt.
