Melancholy II by Paul-Shanghai Melancholy II by Paul-Shanghai
The reference photograph for my drawing has been used a couple of times on DA, and has inspired a wonderful painting and a fantastic coloured pencil drawing - I hadnt come across a graphite pencil drawing before - so here it is :)

The photograph is of a Brazilian child (I will let you make up your mind if it is a he or a she :)) by the wonderful photographer Bart Nino link = www.ninobartuccio.com/ www.ninobartuccio.com please have a look at his other work.

************UPDATE**********UPDATE*************
I have uploaded a quick animation to show the drawing stages - hope you like :) paul-shanghai.deviantart.com/a…

Usual drawing suspects my favourite Faber Castell 8B pencil, Bristol Board Smooth A3 Paper, blending stum and mechanical eraser :)

If you like this drawing you may like my others;

Wow! This is beautiful! I agree that the photo/reference needs to be inspirational. I would love to draw an image like this and portray the look in the eyes the same way! Great work:) I wish I had more time to draw! Good luck with all your artwork:)
