Just found time over a very hectic trip back to the UK to fit in a quick and 'simple' drawing. Not original but a pencil sketch of a beautiful and fantastic photograph by nasht-01 [link] entitled O_O (you can see why).
I did ask for permission several times without reply, but noticed permission has been given before for someone else to draw the photo - so i am keeping my fingers crossed that it will be ok this time also
A3 Bristol Board using 8B through to 4H pencils and a light blending stump for some of the features - I had trouble getting my camera to pick up some of the subtle shading and I had to take it in a dark room, which caused a little shadowing - but still happy(ish) with the result.
Here is a WIP of my third eye drawing. The size is 20cm x 20cm and I had to use a new paper, with more texture. Usually I do not post WIPs before I finish the drawing, but a lot of people asked me to upload the WIPs, so here you go Here the finished work: flaval.deviantart.com/art/Eye-…
I posted a WIP of this a few days ago such was my excitement of finding some smooth 'Bristol Board' A0 paper in downtown Shanghai, and how delighted I was with the progress of my 'Eye' drawing!! Well some late nights have enabled me to finish the piece. I have spent almost as long trying to decide how the final 'scan' should look - should I just upload a similar scan to the WIP, with the eye at an angle, perhaps with a couple of pencils to show scale - or should I do a full-on straight 'scan' as per my normal uploads. Decided to upload 2 versions, and leave it up to you to decide
Anyway, enough waffle a Size A2'ish Female Eye approx. 65cm X 45cm, in graphite, using a range of pencils from 4H through to 8B. c20-30 hours work. My first, but maybe not my last Eye
