Default Inspiration please!

I've done a couple of pencil drawings in the past of famous rock stars (Angus Young from AC/DC and Lemmy Kilmister from Hawkwind/Motorhead) and I'm looking for some inspiration for my next project. The only specification is that it comes from a black and white photo. So, good people of VZI, could you either fire out some suggestions, or better still, post some photos (preferably with a link to the source photo) please?

Your 'Lemmy' and 'Angus' were great Greg - at VW Action this year has a Roman theme - how about Russell Crowe in Gladiator - and maybe we could auction it?

Maybe use your skills to raise a few quid for a good cause - if it turns out as good as the others, I'd bid on it.

I know kids these days are into this Fortnight game. Game of Thrones is popular. I think anything military will always be popular. The RAF Tornado GR4 is about to be retired on 31 March. Lots of us RAF folk are gutted so anything from RAF Marham (617dambusters sqn??)

Wow, that is quite a tall order, and this is going to take some thinking about - I totally loved that Lemmy picture.

The Mono chrome specification does add an interesting dimension.
In a ‘Charles Manson rather than Elvis’ Kinda way

I will give it some thought, and get back to this thread
