Pure and Simple by Paul-Shanghai Pure and Simple by Paul-Shanghai
Just found time over a very hectic trip back to the UK to fit in a quick and 'simple' drawing. Not original but a pencil sketch of a beautiful and fantastic photograph by nasht-01 [link] entitled O_O (you can see why).

I did ask for permission several times without reply, but noticed permission has been given before for someone else to draw the photo - so i am keeping my fingers crossed that it will be ok this time also :)

A3 Bristol Board using 8B through to 4H pencils and a light blending stump for some of the features - I had trouble getting my camera to pick up some of the subtle shading and I had to take it in a dark room, which caused a little shadowing - but still happy(ish) with the result.

Let me know what you think :)

Simple but beautiful - perhaps that is what I should have called it! :)
