St. Patrick's Day by silentsketcher St. Patrick's Day by silentsketcher
It's St. Patrick's Day so I dressed in green and have been listening to Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, and bagpipes. After a while it inspired me to do a holiday piece and I decided to draw an Irish man. I threw in a few tidbits here and there, such as the man tattooed on his side who is Saint Patrick. Also, on the sole of his shoe you can see a small four leaf clover design in the tread. It was just a fun piece to do.

*Sigh* Makes me wish I was a bit Irish. I've got a little Scottish ancestry, but it's mostly German and Polish if I recall correctly. You'd think with a last name like "Shirey" (which sounds an awful lot like "shire", just with a pronounced "E" sound to the end) that it'd be Irish. Oh well.

I've got quite a few drawings I've already committed to doing, but perhaps I can do a revision of my metal head dude some time. Anyway, glad you like my St. Patty's Day dude. I used this guy as the model for designing my lead in that euro rock band.

I'm sure your skill has a lot to do with it...

I wanna do this guy again when St. Patrick's Day rolls around again, but I was thinkin' of havin' him hang out with Micky from Snatch and Clover from Blue Monday. I just love Clover. "Fek aff!" Heh, actually, they both say that.

Thanks! I wouldn't want to get into a bar fight with him either. Heh. Makes me think of Flogging Molly's 'Irish Drinking Song'... "Drink and drink and drink and fight!" That or 'The Spicy McHaggis Jig' by Dropkick Murphys. "I don't know what you lot are talkin' about. And who drank all my beer?" :drunk:

LOL! This made me laugh, but it's really well done! :clap: The tattoo and the celtic knotting are nice touches. Great job on the foreshortening of his left arm, that's really hard to get right. The, er, hair is really well done too. ;P I really like this one, it's got a lot of energy.

Haha! Thanks! I'm guessing that you are referring to the body hair, right? :laughing: Yeah, he's kinda furry. I also liked doing the tattoos. I was kind of thinking of Mickey O'Neil from the movie 'Snatch'.
