Embrace by pbird12 Embrace by pbird12
I love this reference and it was calling on me to draw it right away :) I don't actually know where it came from, it was a random google search, it's not my photo though :no:

EDIT - I found the link finally! www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=Adam…

Materials this time:
Extra Smooth Bristol (The drawing measures about 8"x8")
Graphite - 2H, HB, 2B, 4B and 6B
Erasers
Blue Tac
Tissue
White Gel Pen
Time - About 10-11 hours

Print available in my shop - www.etsy.com/shop/BrighteyesAr…

Thank you for having a look :heart:

I have some WIPs if anyone likes these things

NOTE: I know some of you lovely dA friends get a bit miffed about the Black&White Club rejecting art, so I thought I'd share the reason this one was declined :) The highlight on her nose is too white ('tis the paper and my scanner, it's just like that, I didn't do a thing) the highlights that look like glitter are distracting (um, they were put there on purpose) and the eyes are unapportioned (that's great to know, I though they looked about right). So there you have it :P Another one bites the dust :crying:

I think the "glittery" highlights look amazing! The crate a better sense of skin texture. I would love to know how you managed that!

Thank you very much :)  The glittery effect was just erasing into my blended skin with a TomBow Mono Zero Fine Eraser, it's like a little magical tool and I wouldn't be without it.
