Dominic Howard sketch by Cataclysm-X Dominic Howard sketch by Cataclysm-X
1.5 hour sketch of the drummer of Muse (: drawn while a camera was rolling, so I didn't seem to get the details as good as usual, but I'm still proud of this work!

Original size is slightly smaller than A6 (8cm x 6cm / 3.1" x 2.4").



This was my first of 3 takes for the beginning part of my Muse animation / drawing video -- Take on Muse --





Everytime I screwed up on Matt Bellamy's drawing, so I had to start all over again (which is, indeed, 3 times!). Take #2 ended up in the trash can :lol: while take 3 made it to the final video!


I'm going to send this sketch to a (deviantART) friend as a present. She's been immensely supportive for several years and I never really got to thank her in a good, proper way, so it will be a surprise when this little fella pops up in her mail box. (:


Colorized the image so it's all awesome and purple-ish.



And yes I got a new avatar. People kept assuming I was Misha Collins, so here I really am. Winking at youuuuuuu *wink wink*

OH man...Muse is my favorite! I saw them in concert, and almost caught the drumstick Dominic threw....but the girl in front of me jumped up and grabbed it. :(

Awesome sketch! You're very talented. :)

You have every reason to be proud.I immediately recognized him (since I'm a sort-of fan of Muse). I Love the details and shading although the eyes look a bit strange I'm not sure if it just me but otherwise this is amazing.

(Oh! :D So that's how you do your realism. I always used to just dive into the detail without a sketch and the proportion would come out a bit wrong.. >_<")

It looks very nice (and real of course XD). :D I really like how you do noses and mouths. I usually have a bit of trouble with them sometimes making them a bit feminine. :|'

Keep up the awesome work!! :heart:
