Death Sticks by golfiscool Death Sticks by golfiscool
This is a still life drawing I just finished. I don't know why I chose to draw this but it was very interesting to work on. I am quite pleased with the result too. This is probably one of my most realistic pieces to date. I will probably make this available as a print. Thanks for viewing.

11x14 Bristol Smooth
H, HB, 5B, 8B, HB mechanical pencils
blending stumps
12 hours

I have many free tutorials on my website on how to draw like this. Check them out at [link]

~golfiscool's attention to detail is so incredible, one could nearly grab some Death Sticks right out from the screen! ( Suggested by helionn and Featured by oilsoaked )

Absolutely flawless! Makes me realize I still have a lot of things ahead of me before I come close to the mastery of art, if I can, in my lifetime.(^_^)

I seriously thought this was a photograph at first. Your attention to detail is astounding...I just recently did a still-life drawing in my foundation art class, and I must say, it's going to take me a LONG time and a LOT of practice to get near as good as you. XD
