It's done!

Okay, so this is a drawing I did for someone who wanted to give his wife a nice present for her birthday. It's drawn from a picture of her three daughters. The drawing itself is 20 by 30 cm.

I had to make the whole drawing in a little more than a week so I had a couple busy days with this.

In the reference picture there is a red cushion behind the topmost girls on the right. The man agreed with me that without the background the girls would jump out more and wanted me to leave it plain dark/black. It turned out that that would've been weird so I just left the cushion out and drew the couch anyway. When I handed it over he didn't even notice. But he liked it, so that's good :D


Used:
- 14" by 10.5" Canson Bristol smooth drawing paper
- 8B, 7B, 4B, 2B, B, HB, H and 2H graphite pencils
- ruler (for the grid)
- kneaded eraser
- tissue
- blending sticks
- reference photo

EDIT: Sorry for the double-post!
