Here's a drawing that I finished in 2013. It's a pencil drawing of Geddy Lee from the rock band Rush.
Geddy is the lead singer, bass guitarist and keyboard player in the group.
I wanted to do something different than just a normal portrait, so there's all sorts going on here. There's his guitar on the metal studded wall, a keyboard hidden behind some clockwork and pipes and I drew Geddy as if it was a poster of him on the wall.
The idea is inspired by their Time Machine tour that they did a while ago.
The actual portrait of Geddy is only about 15cm x 16cm, less than half the size of A4.
I will eventually draw the other two members of the band, with the same theme to match.
The second drawing in the series is the gutarist Alex Lifeson and is already more than halfway done, I will post it here when I get it finished.
Geddy Lee: Rush Trio pt 1.
A4 (21cm x 29.7 cm) 220 gsm smooth cartridge paper.
Various grades of pencil ranging up to 6B, HB & 2B mechanical pencils(0.5mm), tortillions, tissues, cotton
buds and erasers.
