I have never had to be specific in the title about what medium was used, but i thought it was appropriate to indicate that this is a drawing and not a photo-manip or similar
Following on from a Tear -
and then a splash -
I thought I would go the whole hog and do a whole person (well almost!). I cannot claim the inspiration for this piece that goes down to a great artist called Aaron Kniele [link]
- but I do claim the 40+ hours of intense, eye bleeding pencil drawing in creating this fairly large (65cm X 40cm) representation of a man running through the finish line.....in water
Drawn entirely using a mechanical 4B pencil, a little bit of eraser, blending stump and a dash of traditional HB here and there. '
The most complex and exhausting piece of work I have done, hope you like it? You can see the scale of the drawing here...
Got up early this morning to catch the morning sun and took some photos outside (as recommended
) so I have uploaded a cleaner photograph without any major shadows.
