Running Water (Pencil) by Paul-Shanghai Running Water (Pencil) by Paul-Shanghai
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 :D

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...



*****UPDATE*****UPDATE******

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.

It was 40 hours over a long period, I normally have 4-5 piece on the go at the same time, so they can actually take me several month to complete - thanks for the kind comment :)

What would you recommend, getting a framed print or going canvas? Would one look better then the other in quality? Which would give it a greater impact?
