Drawing Linkin Parks’s Chester Bennington

Hello My friends, i know it’s long since the last time i posted something, my apologies. Some few days ago we lost a legend, icon, role model and a truly inspirational musician. Chester Bennington. I was shocked to hear the sad news since i listen to their music like every day. One of the thing that was unique with Chester was his unique voice, screams, and how his voice blended in with Mike Shinonda’s was just tremendous.

My favorite songs is “In the end” and “Lost in the echo”. Why?

In the end: Personally, my interpretation for this song is that the journey is what matters the most than the destination, so we should live our lives to the fullest and remember that ever single day in our lives counts.

Lost in the echo: my interpretation for this song is just letting go. In life we settle on past events that don’t make us but breaks us instead, for instance, we lose our loved ones, relationships fails, pain, but none of them ever wants us to settle on the pain of losing them but instead just move on. And i think that’s why the people in the music video are screaming to them, maybe they are upset,

If you listen to most of their songs, they are subtle, artistic, creative with a deeper meaning, that’s what i love the most about Linkin Park.

So this drawing was to give my last respect to Chester Bennington. To all the Linkin Park band members and the family and friends, I salute you.

The full drawing video is on my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8gi2eWQfo8

Approach to creating realistic colored pencil drawings

img_20170202_152243

This is the second largest note in Kenya after 1000 shilling note. The drawing took me approximately 4 hrs and 98% of the time was spent on just the details. I believe that for one to achieve great realism in hyper realistic or photo realistic drawings, one should pay a lot of attention on the details no matter how tiny they are, also light and shadow is quite an important factor. Knowing where your light is coming from helps a lot in creating realistic drawings. It helps one put the light and shadows in the right place and also lighten up small details like on the 500 shilling note, you can see how those small folds are standing out….

Contrast too is an important factor that many realistic artists don’t put much focus on, this can be achieved by mixing colored pencils with markers or paints to increase the contrasts because i believe they have a very high contrast.

Watch me draw that 500 shilling note on my YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyluJ2rc1eI and let me know what you think on the comments.

Thank you see you soon!!!!

Beautiful, smart and super talented. Her role in Empire is what moved me to draw her.
Now I’m working on Hakeem Lyon of which is coming very soon.

Drawing Ivy Levan

For a woman with such an incredible voice and beauty that resembles the stars in the sky can never go ‘undrawn’. Never!

Drawing Winnie Harlow

I first saw her on Eminem and Sia’s song guts over fear. It made me feel confident that there is nothing impossible for a willing hand! With a skin condition, she’s an incredible model of which sincerely speaking i have never seen someone so determined like her before! simply because those who had the passion lacked determination and lost hope because of a small scratch on the face. I think God created us all not to suffer in this world but to aspire, shoot for the stars regardless of who we are. It’s no wonder someone without or with one leg can stand up and become among the fastest people in the world! it’s no irony, wait for the paralympic games and see it for yourself. People who are willing and determined always prove the dictionary wrong that the word impossible doesn’t exist! look at Helen Keller, they proved that so long as God has given you a head with a brain in it you have no excuse not to aspire.

Drawing tribal woman

We live in a world where we are over saturated by different kinds of people who continue to define and redefine culture. It’s who we are, the way of life.
   Another woman drawing! I believe women are the experts when it comes to preserving our culture for future generations.
   I used my own imagination, I didn’t focus on any tribe because i love making art my own way. I hope you love it!

Drawing my favorite childhood cartoons

image

This were the kind of things that really inspired me to become an artist since childhood, cartoons. As i said, it’s the little things that makes life great and worth memorable. This is what brought me here, and not a single day will it ever slip my mind. That’s why i drew it.
