the Grace of a Princess by clarence-mcgraw the Grace of a Princess by clarence-mcgraw
I decided to change my drawing technique a little. All of the shading was done with hatching and cross-hatching rather than my normal smooth shading. I hope you all like it. Lots of detail, so full view, please. ^_^

Usual suspects:

Mechanical pencil on white card stock.

I'm not reaaly sure. Over here in the States, 8.5'' x 11'' is the size for most legal documents, notebooks, and printing paper. On second though, no, it isn't. 8.5'' x 11' is listed separatedly fron A4 on American printers.

8.5 x 11, that's more or less A4 right?
