  Salvatore Paul Erna, or just Sully Erna, the leader of the hard rock band Godsmack.
I chose this reference photo not only because it was one of the better quality pictures of Sully I could find, but, first of all, because I find it just was... begging to be drawn! Look at this play of the shadows on his face, details of the kerchief, the tattoos... <3 I LUV drawing such things. Whereas I did the exact copy of Sully's face and body from the reference picture, I let myself change the background, these lights are my idea. And I'm surprised how smooth the backgound turned out! I extremely enjoyed shading his face, such contrasts are a big challenge which takes more time, but I really like it. I'm happy with the outcome and consider it my best 2012 drawing so far ^^ He looks like a pirate here :grin:

A4, H-8B Koh-I-Noor pencils, a regular eraser, a kneaded eraser, a Pentel white gel pen. Time: 60 hours.
