Offspring drawing FINALLY SCANNED (drawn: 2003) by MelyssaThePunkRocker Offspring drawing FINALLY SCANNED (drawn: 2003) by MelyssaThePunkRocker
Reference photo used: [link]
There are a ton of missed details, but the printer I used to print out the photo sucked, it was in black and white, and the grid I put on the photo print-out itself obscured a lot of the details.

Edit 4/30/12: I finally scanned it! But this was scanned a few years after the book I drew it in got put in the garage and the rain got to it, causing some of the graphic shading to spread out and bleed a little. This has diminished the sharpness of the hair detailing and the dark shadowing of the tops of their eyes, as well as some other areas. I will attempt to correct this, but I wanted to scan it first in case I screwed up. Also, the blurriness on the left edge is obviously due to the spiral rings.

Ugh, with this being scanned and all now, a blunder is now FAR more visible. I kept screwing up Greg K's left eye and erased so many times I ripped through the top layer of the paper, which is clearly visible. So, yeah..., that's what THAT is. Greg was actually really difficult to draw correctly (particularly his jawline) from the photo I was using. It doesn't look like him at all here, but I did what I was supposed to - I drew what I saw in each square once I gridded the black and white version of the photo.

Other band fan art I made: [link]

I did this in the same style as a project in 10th grade, but used a different photo and just did this one for fun and to challenge myself. We graphed on a black and white photo evenly spaced vertical and horizontal lines. Then scaled up the graph on a blank peace of paper. We focused on one square at a time, treating each square as in individual drawing, rather than a part of a bigger picture. This was my result.

I used pencil. It did take a long time, I will not lie about that. I'm sure your art is better than you think it is.
