Done!

Blegh, I was writing this story about how it came together after two and a half years, but it turns out I suck at writing...
I did this drawing for Emily whose birthday is in two weeks, so I'll give this to her.
This drawing may have taken more time than any I have done before, but the time is spread out over more than three months so it's hard to tell exactly how long.
The sweater took the most time though, but you may have guessed that.

Anyway here's what I used:
- a4 printer paper (the outlines were drawn before I decided not to draw on that any more)
- 2H, H, HB, B, 2B, 4B, 7B and 8B graphite pencils
- ruler for the grid
- kneaded eraser
- reference picture
- tissues
- blending stick

Other stages:
WIP 1
WIP 2
WIP 3

this is utterly beautiful, i thought it was a photograph at first and then when you mentioned the jumper in the description i couldnt stop looking at it hahaI think I've fainted.
did you use a white pencil at any time, like for highlights in the eyes?

Really impressive! Not sure i would have the patience to do the knitted jumper! Loved seeing the stages of the picture. Very interesting to see how much detail you put into a section before moving on.
