Izzy Stradlin by rivertem Izzy Stradlin by rivertem
His face is sort of a bit off but I wasn't game enough to fix it or I would've stuffed it up. It always happens to me. So this time I just left it.

See, I've learnt from my mistakes. :XD:

For all the Izzy fans out there. :heart:



P.S. anyone else heard about the $1 mil. lawsuit filed against GN'R for plagiarism in a song in Chinese Democracy, or am I just slow?

for as much as I don't like the guy, this is really well done. Is that charcoal? Or just graphite? It looks fantastic, regardless!

Aw, thank you! It's just graphite... though once I get some willow charcoal (I already have compressed and some pencils) I want to start using them and getting used to using that particular media. :D

One of my favorite photos of Izzy ever, and you did a great job with it -- I can't get over the shading. Those are Izzy's eyes, his hair, mouth, and chin... and of course, one of his trademark hats, which is really well done.

Great job!

thank you for please my inner rabid izzeh fangirl one more time! :boogie:
and hey! his face looks great!!

and by the way, yup, i've heard of that lawsuit XDDD as i see the things, this is just another call of the destiny for axl to re-join the original line up, this would never happened with those other four around, so axl, stop bitching and make peace with the guys, to see your life pacefully again, otherwise, the disgrace is going to keep following you :evillaugh: XDDD LMAO!
chinense democracy makes me cry,:cries: that thing hurts mai feelings! XD

I hadn't heard about the lawsuit filed against them either =/ What song was supposedly plagiarized?

I found it when I was researching for my Film & TV assignment: [link]

"The alleged plagiarism happens at the start of the track “Riad N’ the Bedouins” from GN'R’s best-selling Chinese Democracy [ha! – obviously we’re joking about the ‘best seller’ bit]."

They make me laugh. :XD: I haven't heard the song before cause I don't really want to touch Chinese Democracy more than I have to, but hmm

Yeah, I used to be pretty darn crap, but it's just practice and learning not to try and fix things when they don't desperately need it. >_>
Well, that last part was mainly me, but it might apply to you, too! I don't know. XD

I'm not an Izzy's fan, but I think that this drawing is great :3 I love the eyes and the way you made the "shadows". And the hat.. I'm sure it was such a hard work to make the dark+light parts of it O_O

Aw, thank you so much!! :heart: I am so glad you said that, his eyes were probably the hardest part for me. Just getting them right, ugh.

And you're right, the hat and his leather jacket, especially, was really hard work. >_<

Thank you!! Again! XD
