Wet X

I have give up with titles - can you guess :D

A time consuming piece that almost forced me to reduce the size and content - however I stuck with it and thought the whole thing came out ok - learned a lot whilst drawing this, not least my own short comings and areas that I need to improve in. Still happy with the end result and the subject/photographer were also happy which makes it all worthwhile :)

The reference used for this drawing was very kindly supplied by Tina Eisenkraetzer a very talented photographer who's work can be found here and here @ttwophotography.

Drawn on locally sourced smooth Paper, the drawing measures approx. 20X30 cm and was drawn using a 
range of Faber-Castell 9000 pencils  and a dash of Staedler Mars Lumograph 8B for the black parts - Mono Zero eraser and plenty of time circa40 hours.
