James Hetfield by Pandannabelle James Hetfield by Pandannabelle
Here's the last of the 3 this time around.

My always beloved, James Hetfield, lead singer of Metallica.

He is part two of a birthday gift for a friend, with Matt Bellamy [link] being the other part.

I loved doing this drawing, despite the fact that it took so exceptionally long, I spent about 40 hours on this, which is waaaay more than usually, but I truly think it was well worth it.

I'm just sad that I'm giving this away, but I want to make someone else happy :)

A4, bristol paper, 0.7 & 0.5 mechanical and HB regular pencils. No blending, to keep that rough skin look again :)

Enjoy, love Metallica, and any comments welcome as always

Reference for this picture was taken from the Metallica book So What! (I think, i really can't remember)

Ok, I'm not gonna lie. This was the top of the deviation stack in my deviantwatch folder and I saw it and thought "Aww cool, Anna's done some photography". I shit you not my mouth hit the floor when I realised that you DREW this. I mean... :O! It's amazing, and you know how much I love Hetfield darling. :P
God, I remember when I saw your first drawing and it was just amazing but this... this is just on a whole different level. Tbh if I got something this awesome for my birthday I would probably actually just kiss you out of pure joy! Or faint with overwhelming happiness. It could go either way.
Amazing work hun', you truly have outdone yourself.

AWWWWWWWW hahahahaha first of all, ive never heard the term "i shit you not" and im almost in tears laughing XD Its actually my favorite drawing I've ever done tbh, just a pity I'm giving it away, but I can easily do it again another time haha :D
I think Ive improved a lot since 4 years ago, cos can you believe, its only been 4 years that Ive been drawing for?! :D
Hahaha I think if you were this happy to get it I would let you XD
Thank you so much sweetheart, it means the world to me that you like my work so much :D

Really? Seriously? I've been using it quite a lot recently. I don't know what it is about it, just sounds so... me. :L
I can, since I do remember it was shortly after you started drawing that we met :P. I'm old but my memory ain't that bad xD
I love your work. Always have hunni - I just feel I don't tell you enough :P.

It does sound like you, and kinda something like what i'd say, just cos it has 'shit' in it haha :D
God I look back at the drawings I did then and I feel like a fail hahah ^^
Im just glad i got better at it tbh :D
Awww its more than enough when i see your individual responses, it feels amazing to know you love my work, makes it worthwhile :D

Darling, you don't watch enough TV. :P
I feel the same way when I look at some of my old writing. It's just horrific. Will need to be revised at somepoint if I ever have the time. :L

Uni tried to do that to my life... then I discovered Dexter, and TV won.
You should. It's good to see, in real contrast, where you've come from and where you're going :P.
