THAT IS PHENOMENAL! I am curious about graphite illustration, as I'd never done alot in that media. I'm impressed that you did this with no blending whatsoever!! Goodness, me.

Congratulation, Etienne...
for finally finishing this!
The upper portion of the drawing seemed a bit washed out.
Did you scan this?
Also, I thought you're going to try digital...
how come it's CP? :roll:
