Chester Bennington by zakValkyrie Chester Bennington by zakValkyrie
i've been listening to linkin park since i was 4 years old, which was 10 years ago, now im 15 and still a hardcore fan, they never cease to amaze me, although they changed their sound and isnt the nu metal band they were back in 1998 but they still somehow seem to entertain me even without their heavy sound.

this one took more than 10 hours and i used 1h,2h,2b,3b,4b,5b,and 8b pencils and a tortillon. the leather was the hardest thing to do

I wish I knew what the original picture looked like, so I can critique this a bit better, because it looks more like Rob Halford with a few differences... and is it just me, or are his top lips non-existent... like, actually? I've seen a lot of your work and I doubt that would be a mistake.
The only other thing I can say is that his head looks a little too wide, which probably is why the eyes seem a little small to me.
Not bad at all, though :-)

that's a gremlin face :icono3oplz: Love it nonetheless. awesome job on our favorite singer chester :D (and i think they've changed for all the better. have you actually listened to their lyrics? they've gone to confused, dark, lonely, to trying to break those habits and stopping the drama and now, in their most recent album they've moved on with their lives. that sound is reflected in their music and there's a more peaceful reflection in them. i love their music no matter what as well though. they're always true to themselves)

Yeah i agree, many said linkin park is weak and crap now but i still think they are still quite heavy,just listen to victimized and lies greed misery, all they did was change their sound, and its not only them, other bands,korn,slipknot limp bizkitZ and many others also drastically changed their ways, because the truth is that they cant be metal forever,one reason,screaming can greatly affect vocal chords,chester has been screaming for 10 years

haha, yes! there you go. I heard Breaking Benjamin and Avenged Sevenfold kinda changed up their sound as well. (although i haven't heard from BB in a while...)

im not such a fan of a7x but i love bb, benjamin is still quite heavy, well their not metal, but their sound can be considered one, now i havent heard about them for a while. But i found most bands who got a bit 'light' tried to be heavy again in their latest albums, for example, korn said their newest album 'the paradigm shift' would sound like their older albums.
