Eye study in pencil (Russell Dunbar)

9” x 9” pencil on crescent 215 Illustration board

This is a study for an upcoming drawing titled “New Moon, Old Souls” I was testing some new drawing board to see how it handles mechanical pencils.

This is beautiful. I've lost vision in both eyes and don't do such work now, so thanks for showing it.
