Andrew Belle - Shadows Photo by Doctor-Pencil Andrew Belle - Shadows Photo by Doctor-Pencil
I wanted to upload the reference photo for my upcoming drawing of my son "Andrew Belle". I'm thinking about uploading the reference pics with all my future drawings?

Andrew is a rising singer-songwriter, mainly in the USA but is known in dozens of countries too. 14 of his 16 songs have been on TV shows like Grey's Anatomy. If you like Indie music, you will LOVE his style, lyrics, rhythms and voice! He surely doesn't need me to promote him, but I can't help myself :D:D

His latest CD "The Ladder" was #1 on iTunes in 2010 three times for singer-songwriters, and is compared to Coldplay, The Fray and Greg Laswell.

Hehe funny I typed "Andrew Belle" on DA because I was curious to see if there was any interesting artwork about him since I really really enjoy his music. I can't believe his dad is on DA :XD: you must be so proud of him hehe :)
This picture is very good, have you finished the drawing yet? Your gallery is amazing by the way, I wish I could produce as many portraits as you do, I need to learn to be more patient because I often give up halfway through :blushes:

Thank you very much!! I've been on here about 18 months? Always been proud of him, but it keeps going to new levels, ha. I'm a big fan of his music too! Great chill music and perfect for drawing :D:D Just do not give up! Remember, "It's just my patience that keeps me alive" - All Those Pretty Lights :D:D

i heard your son play on youtube he has got major talent i guess this talent runs in the family: artists and musicians i hope your son goes a long way and wish you do too in your art career. BTW this photo looks so good - great tone, shape, lighting composition and i think you should draw this Rick its a must draw..maybe the drawing you do of this can go on one of Andrew's Albums.. hey there an idea :)

I'm going to make professional prints and sell them signed at his shows lol :D:D He knows I draw...if he wants me, it will be HIS idea. Besides, he is too humble to put his face as the center of attention on an album cover :D
