If you like Linkin Park then you are in for a special treat. Today I will attempt to show you "how to draw Mike Shinoda", step by step. Instead of the typical tribal style portraits I have been doing as a drawing style lately when I make lessons based on people, I went ahead and made a drawing of Mike Shinoda the old fashioned way. Mike was born and raised in Agoura Hills located in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California. His father is a Japanese American, and his mother is Caucasian. Mike Shinoda started his career with Linkin Park back in 1996 and they are still going strong till this day. Anyways, I hope you learn something when drawing Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park. I have another lesson on a band member from LP so stay tuned in.
