Jon Schaffer by lapis-lazuri Jon Schaffer by lapis-lazuri
Jon Schaffer from Iced Earth.

That's one band I discovered relatively recently (about 1-2 years ago), but it didn't take too long before they aligned amongst my favorites. And now I can recognize their guitars in my sleep.... not that it's that hard.

By the way, this is a drawing I made on.... um, something like a request. I say "something like" because the idea wasn't originally mine, BUT once suggested, I was like "dammit, gotta draw it RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!"

So, on the awesome suggestion by :iconfenrir1987:
Thanks a lot for the idea, mate! Hope ya likes it! :meow:

Ref: [link]
2B - 8B, HB on A4. No color, but this time I added some background, and matter of fact I came to realize I should do it more often.

Damn it, I REALLY love how this one came out. I think it's my new auto-favorite :D

Really?!? Can't believe, where on Earth do you live, mate?! Gotta be a boring place without.... *cough* I mean.... Do what I do - educate them! :D By means of B-R-U-T-A-L Metallotherapy!!! :evillaugh:

P.S. And I've also heard of Kataklysm :P :headbang:

Damn dude!!! Your awesome!!! No ones heard of kataklysm either!! unfortunately i lived in Silverthorne, Colorado, US. Now in Denver living by myself so no interaction with people really.


Are you actually from bulgaria??

Hahahah, yeah, actually the first time I heard Kataklysm, it was thanks to some dude I don't know - one Saturday morning he was simply making sure his entire quarter would hear about them, and I settled myself in a strategic position just beneath his window so that I could listen :D I liked them right away, but the old ladies passing me by were staring both at me and the window with very funny expressions on their faces :D
By the way, you probably just don't know the right places. There must be some clubs in your town where metallers gather, and positively there would be people to know both bands, and many more. I mean, Denver is a big city, there must be places and people like this.

Yeah, I'm a 100% pure Bulgarian :) Have you actually heard of Bulgaria? That makes YOU awesome! :highfive:

Oh, then you've got my best wishes to come visit Bulgaria very very soon, cause you really gotta see it. Our nature is more than magical, and there's also lots of interesting historical places to visit. We've got an epic and glorious history, you know :)

How long did that take you? Doesn't seem that long ago I made the suggestion!

Yeah, well, must have been just a few days, drawing for no more than a couple of hours in the evenings.... I don't actually keep records of that, but I noticed that I've started drawing portraits much more rapidly than before.
Anyway, I'm very glad you like it! Thank you so much! :highfive:
