This is similar to my other drawing - Captive;
Captive by Paul-Shanghai

The reference for this was taken from a wonderful photograph by John Steven Fernandez www.johnstevenfernandez.com - I suggest you check out his gallery and appreciate all of his other wonderful photographs.

Drawn on A3 Bristol Board with a range of mechanical and traditional pencils, blending stumps and erasers - took approx 15 hours.

The drawing is A3 in size, I do own an electric eraser - but never use it! I just used a fine mechanical eraser to get the white hairs in the eyebrows.

Thanks - I changed the reflection a little, as the original had the photographer reflected in the eye - it also helps with giving the impression that the eye is curved :)
