Kill Your Idols by opticalxarsenal Kill Your Idols by opticalxarsenal
So this is a little out-of-date, late, et cetera, et cetera. So sue me. x_x The lineart's been sitting on my hard drive for eons. I just dug it up today, along with maybe 15 other pieces I totally forgot about. Those'll surface here eventually, too.

Anyway. This is a charicature of Tripp Eisen, a guitarist of one of my favorite bands, Static-X. I don't think Tripp is proportionately this skinny... my drawing needs to go eat a SANDWICH.

Again, pencil n' Photoshop. And the background is a random picture of my friend Jason's wood burner (and in getting this picture, all the burning wood consequently fell out of the burner and onto the wooden floor. THAT was fun).

P.S. Please bite your tongue and keep any negative comments about Static-X, Tripp, or my general taste in music to yourself. I HATE it when people scrutinize other people's choices in music; and it's even worse if someone does some kind of fan art, and other people only focus on voicing disapproval of the band, and don't offer any constructive criticism about the art itself whatsoever.

Pet peeve. Keep in mind or I bite.

The whole thing is rather disheartening to say the least. (Is that a word? I dunno.) Let's just say this is from before all that, when all was right with the world. ^_~

awesome!! i love it!! :D Static-X rocks (they're one of my fav bands) and Tripp is an amazing guitarist...if anyone makes any negative comments i shall bite them too :stab: anyway...i love the colors (for some reason i always associate green and black with Static-X too...probably cuz of the cover art for Shadow Zone :P)...the pose is very cool...definitely reminds me of him...the background is very interesting and i think it complements the drawing well...oh and i :heart: the song you used for the title...great job :D

...and i definitely agree with LluviaWolf...ive seen them in concert too and they kick ass :headbang: yeah okay i'll shut up now :)

*gasp!* I was gonna go see them when they were in Cleveland, but I opted not to go. I thought to myself, "Eh, they'll be back." They uh... haven't been back. x_x

Actually, at the last Mushroomhead show I was there for, some kid was mugged after the show, and beaten so badly he was knocked unonscious and basically left for dead in an alley around the House of Blues... it was like 20 degrees out and nobody found him till early the next morning. So yeah, I can kind of understand some people's hesitation to go back. XD

Damn, I'm going to the House of Blues sunday for Jagermiester tour. Ahaha, but I should be safe. That and Cleveland shows don't sell as many tickets as they should.

That's cool. ^_~ I've been to the HoB twice and survived-- I always get there early though, and eat at the restaurant. Mmm, salmon. Anyway, who's playing? The two times I was there, I was seeing Dope's Jager tour.

Man, I've always wanted to see Dope. This year it's Stone Sour, Shadows Fall, and Lacuna Coil. I'm eating at home, but going early anyways. =D

Thanks. ^_~ Getting the background photo was dangerous to say the least! (And I totally ran out of ideas for a different background, and was tired of the Clouds render. >_>; )
