I came across this photo [link]
and thought I would like to draw it. I haven't done a pencil drawing in years, but seeing other DA artists work inspired me to give it a try.
With the photographer's permission, I lightened the picture so I could see it better. So my drawing is intentionally lighter than the photo.
I used graphic pencils 4H - 4B on 11"x14" Strathmore vellum paper. I think I could have used at least a 6B for the darkest of dark or maybe a different type of paper for a smoother effect? I sure would like some opinions on this.
