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...
