Shower by Paul-Shanghai Shower by Paul-Shanghai
Yes another wet person drawing :) This time I am at a loss to explain where I got the image from, or even who is  portrayed  getting a soaking - all I can tell you is that I wanted to draw it as soon as i saw it - and I will draw this one again once I improve.

Usual friends joined me in drawing this picture - Bristol Board(ish) smooth paper, traditional 4H to 8B pencils and my mechanical 4B 0.5mm Pencil, Tombo Mono Zero eraser, little bit of tissue for the blouse and about 30 hours to draw this rather large - 40X45cm drawing.

Like this one then perhaps you may like my other 'wet people' drawings :D

Awesome :)

do you have any tips on drawing water?
like, do you first draw the basic face and then add the drops (like you said you do with hair)?

I will be writing a tutorial on drawing water soon - so keep watching :)
In short - I tend to outline where the water drops will go (if they are large) and draw the rest of the face around them, going back to the drops and 'filling them in' at the end.  For the small drops I just erase what I have done and create drops using darker pencils or outlines.
