Sad by Paul-Shanghai Sad by Paul-Shanghai
I couldn't think of a better title!

The original was from a photo found on a google search of images with the word 'SAD' and this has to be the sadest photo I have ever seen! Not because the child is crying, but just the look on his face.

Usual suspects;
A4 Bristol Board
Range of mechanical pencils, 4B,2B and HB 0.3mm to 0.7mm

Hope you like it :)

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

The picture is entered into a competition, and it would be great to get your vote, I dont have much chance of winning, but who knows with your vote it just may happen :)

Use this link to vote....The link to vote for it is HERE  [link]

Thanks in advance :)

hahaha not great at all - just a beginner, learning with every new drawing.
I tend to post a new piece every week (keeps the pressure on) - so hope you enjoy the new stuff also :)
