Homage to my absolute favorite band, ever - the incredible Matt Bellamy, front man of MUSE. :worship:

I came across this wonderful photograph a while back: [link] taken by James Porteous and had the uncontrolable urge to paint it! So after a little emailing, James was kind enough to let me take a stab at painting his wonderful shot. Thank you James! : )

Muse are by far my favorite band, their music means a lot to me and always inspires. :heart: So I had to do some Muse art eventually. Plus my gallery seriously needs more guys - so Matt was my victim!

This was so much fun. The guitar was an absolute bitch to paint and I won't be painting another any time soon D: There's too many fabulous songs to name this after but I decided to go with one of my favorite songs - Starlight.

:nod: Yes, Muse are the kings of awesome.  They're my go-to band when I'm writing - with the exception of Tool, I can't find any other band whose music is SO CONDUCIVE to the creative process ... :love:
