Contemplation by Paul-Shanghai Contemplation by Paul-Shanghai
As you can tell I am running out of 'WET' type words Either I will have to think of some more - or stop drawing wet people

Loved the reference and for once I love the drawing (am I allowed to say I like my own work?) Still I think the tones, textures and expression are wonderful - a great emmotional picture with the added bonus of water, and it almost fits into my sporadic 'half face' series :D

Found this reference during a google search, and wanted to draw it instantly - searched twice for the owner, and could not find it - if you are the owner (or know the photographer) please let me know so I can give them the proper credit they deserve.

Nice Size this piece - 40X30cm on Bristol Board Smooth paper, using the usual suspects of 4H, HB, 4B and 8B Pencils, my Tombo Mono Zero eraser and pencil blending stick - in all between 20-25 hours give or take 5 hours :)

One of my favourites - let me know what you think :):)

I have just uploaded a short animation show the various stages of drawing - you can view it here...

Have you ever considered making a time lapse video? If you have a decent computer and basic editing software you could videotape it with your phone or a webcam and make a pretty amazing video!

I have considered and even tried - I think I need some better equipment - at least a camera tripod or holder?  I normally take several weeks or even months to finish one piece and with different lighting levels etc. but I am sure this could all be over come with the right equipment - I will investigate :)

I am only asking as it would provide an excellent new perspective on how your superb realism is accomplished (besides the obvious "practice, practice, practice!"). even if you don't get it to work, it will be okay.

No problem it is something I want to do myself - I have just been asking the best guy in the business :iconambr0: about what he uses, and he has sent me some great tips - so fingers crossed I will be up and running soon :)
