Hi my friends, long time no see, post, whatever.. :)


I finally finished my portrait of Matt Smith (11th Doctor) for the lovely and ever-so-patient ~trinityknot. It should be there with you any day now. :heart:

WIP


Optional title: Till We Meet Again


Normally I am faster with drawing portraits, but lately (last couple of years) I have some issues with my hands and back so I couldn't draw much. BUT, as it turned out my hands felt slightly better last 2 months, I could finally finish this large figure drawing. Yay!


It was drawn on A3 size (30 x 40cm) with graphite pencils and several pink/purple Prisma color pencils.
Or more specifically:

- 2H, H, F, HB, 2B mechanical pencils
- H, HB, 2B, 3B, 5B, 6B, 8B regular pencils
- 5 Prisma colors
- Hahnemühle Nostalgie A3 size paper
- Q-tips and tissues for blending
- reference image, obviously


Estimated time: approx 60 hours


Cheers :heart:

Maybe some ginger tea can help your hand feel better. Also, my husband takes MSM which helps his hand from cramping up (hes a mechanic). Primavera Suite

Hahaha. I'm amused that the only thing that's colored is his underwear. 

So much detail...the wrinkles, the angle, skin lines that women find hot, the brow...his hair. As always amazed with how you draw hair. Well done.
