8"x10" graphite pencil on smooth paper.
Roughly 40 hours of work.
Photo reference used.

This is a portfolio piece only. I will not be making any prints of this drawing. I seriously debated whether or not to even post it, because I have no idea where I got the photo I referenced for this drawing. However, I was too happy with the result to not share it.

EDIT: Two wonderful people tracked down wallpaper sites where the original photo can be found.

EDIT: *EatToast tracked down the photographer! Rachel Hale was the mystery photographer whos work I referenced for this piece.

Thank you to everyone who helped me find the source of my reference. :hug:

This is really nice, I found this on chance. Reminds me of a friend and myself, how she calls me a guard dog. Its a shame its only portfolio only, very well done.

Hi Sidney,

Sorry to tell you, but I found your artwork stolen by someone on Instagram by the name of @rabbit.matt_ who also has a Facebook page,…

He stole this drawing of yours which I really, really liked, and I thought it was odd that he uploaded so many drawings, of different styles, in a short amount of time. He drew a lot of likes. I was curious, so I wanted to make sure if he drew it or not, because I'm quite picky about supporting original artists and only liking/following their original works. So I used TinEye reverse image search. I found your drawing online on other image sharing websites, but I didn't initially find your deviantart page until I found the name of your drawing.

Your drawing is still up on this thief's page (…), however he has now made his Instagram "private" so that people can't comment with original artist credit (when I did for this drawing, he swiftly deleted it), or even report him (I guess you could try report his account?)

Shortly before he made his Instagram private, I found that he actually posted up his details for commission enquiries (can you believe this shameless prick?), which is how I got his facebook page, polish email and his Polish phone number. LOL.
I would like take a course online in drawing. Weekday would you recommend? Thanks
