I've seen a lot of people's versions of this photo of Eddie and this is by far the best I've come across! The realism of his face, hair, and even the neck is superb. Really love this!

Aw.. thank you! I don't think I've seen any other renditions of this picture. My friend wanted me to draw it so I did. I was pretty pleased with the outcome-- I'm glad you like it! :D

I'm thinking of adding one more too :) Jerry Cantrell who is the guitarist for Alice in Chains too. I just saw them in concert 3 weeks ago in Vegas and he so kicked ass. He must be included so there may be two more drawings :)
