Numerous graphite wooden and clutch pencils on Bristol Board 250gsm. Took me a long, long time, about 9 hours. For once I'm reasonably happy with this drawing once completed particularly her face, I approached this drawing in an entirely different manner which seems to work well.

20+ hours A3 Smooth Bristol Board, numerous graphite mechanical pencils from 7B to 2H, 2mm to 0.3mm. Blue tack erasing. I didn't do much blending but where I did I used a dry makeup brush. Very, very challenging piece. Glad it's finished.

Audrey is perhaps the most beautiful woman in the world.

I completed this drawing remarkable quickly, probably about 3 hours in total. Some of the heavy shading could have been better but it didn't really show up till I scanned it in.

Bristol Board 250gsm card
A mixture of 9B to 2H derwent pencils with a 2B and 2H 0.3mm clutch pencil for the fine bits. I'm reasonably happy with her hair but felt that any more work in that area would make it worse so stopped where I did.

Critiques welcomed. This is one the my first pencil drawings that I am reasonably happy with so I do feel I've crossed a quality line but welcome any opportunity to advance further.

Craggy faced Daniel Craig. When I first heard he was going to play James Bond I thought he would be terrible. But then he turned out to be the best yet. He's clearly read the books so all the light humour had gone and he plays a hardened killer, has a pretty poor attitude towards women and generally does whatever he wants....just as Flemming intended.

This is my first pencil submission for a long time. I've been tied up with work and did a couple of commissions that the recipients didn't want online.

So. It's Craig on A4 Windsor and Newton Smooth Bristol Board 250gsm.
I used a selection of mechanical pencils ranging from 2H to 6B. The heavy shading was with a 0.7mm 6B clutch pencil.
An assortment of erasers with wooden tortillons and tissue paper for blending.
Took me about 20 hours probably. Phew!

My third Christmas Holiday drawing. Not very good to be honest but hey, I feel it's only fair to subject people to the stuff that doesn't turn out how I want as well as the stuff I like ;-)

Charcoal. An experiment really. Doesn't work too well on bristol board, I'll maybe stick to pastel paper with some texture to it.

The big man.
A3 smooth bristol board. Mostly mechanical pencils from 7B to 2H, bluetack erasing and not much blending but where I have, it's with a dry make up brush.
Oooh, about 20 hours.

It's A Shih tzu! (And yes, I had to look up how to spell it). Another commission for a friend. Bristol Board again with many, many pencils both wooden and clutch. Tissue blending and an eye-watering 8 hours. White dogs eh?

I really struggled with this it has to be said.

Commission piece, with thankfully a lot more detail than the last one.
