Captive by Paul-Shanghai Captive by Paul-Shanghai
i guess you can look on it as a child looking from behind the bars wanting to escape, or as a child peering through the bars at something (or someone) being held captive?

Either way I loved the reference picture, especially the way his nose and forehead pressed onto the bars, and how the hand hung on to support his weight. Reference image by Sascha Burkard (and yes I did buy the rights to copy )

Normal suspects helped me in my crime against art
Bristol Board A3 Smooth
Mechanical and Traditional pencils 4H t0 8B
Blending stump and various erasers and the odd glass of wine


Various people have asked me to do a smiling child - i have promised to do so (as soon as I find a reference photo I like enough )
