Maasai Boy

The reference for this drawing was a wonderful photograph by a great artist, his name is Stephan Brauchli, and you can find more of his wonder photographs by clicking this link The boys eyes were what immediately made me want to draw this, and the picture fits in perfectly with the rest of my child portraits.

Tools used for my drawing were the usual mix of mechanical and traditional pencils from 4H to 8B, erasers, blending stumps all on Bristol Board Smooth - Size A3, time 10-15 hours.
