I can't tell you how many requests I got for me to do a lesson on "how to draw M. Shadows", step by step. This performer is the lead singer for Avenged Sevenfold as well as the founding member and songwriter. His full real name is Matthew Charles Sanders, and he has been with Avenged Sevenfold since 1999. The band was formed with fellow schoolmates Zacky Vengeance, Jimmy Sullivan (also known as 'The Rev'), and Matt Wendt. After a majority of the band was formed, Synyster Gates hopped along and became the band's lead guitarist. He was the friend of Sullivan so I guess you could say that The Rev put in a good word for him. Anyways, drawing M. Shadows will be a very exciting lesson for all you Avenged Sevenfold fans. As you tackle this tut, I will be preparing my next submission. Adios people and enjoy.
