Love Hurts by pbird12 Love Hurts by pbird12
I hope every commission I get is as fun as this one and the next two to come :happybounce:

Materials:
A4 Mellotex (minus a 1cm border for framing)
Graphite - 3H to 6B and 8B Mars Lumo
Eraser
BluTack
Time: Somewhere between 10-12 hours
The ref was provided by the commissioner.
It's, as always, not scanning especially well, but it's close enough :shrug:
EDIT: I've uploaded a slightly better scan, the last one was bothering me :D

Thank you very much for having a look
Paula :heart:

Sir/ma'am, this is a very nice artwork. I would like to request permission to use this as a reference photo for my next drawing. Sorry, I'm a noob. :)

Hi there, 

Sure you can use it as a reference, I did use a ref for the drawing, but if you link it back to me, I'm happy for you to use it :)

This is breath taking gorgeous! Looking at your gallery makes me want to get back into serious drawing. I use to draw so much as a teen, but have slowed down drastically as an adult.
Question though.....why do you use BlueTack for? I assume it is to create a certain effect?

Thank you so much. I didn't draw for ten years before joining dA and it's been brilliant, I highly recommend it :nod:

I use blutacK instead of a kneaded eraser, it works soooo much better!

coming back to this piece of yours, I am still amazed. You just managed to create every texture perfectly, I just love the distant drops, but the more focused ones are just amazing as well. You just did this in a fantastic way.

Hi there,

My commissions vary depending on detail and size etc, but as a starting point I take 50 for a straightforward A4 portrait :)

Love this! The shading is fantastic especially on the hand. There is just enough lighting on the fingers to keep the darkeness from overpowering the rest of the drawing. The amount of detail in the rest of the drawing is incredible as well.

You know, I thought this would be a nightmare, but it really wasn't. The bokeh was sooo easy and done with blutack and I literally erased all the drops. It was fun!

It's not "lightning" but "lighting", right? :lol: Been spelling it wrong for years, not now I occasionally at least remember it's not ... but .... :D

So beautiful! :love: You drew this pretty fast and amazingly well for as complex work as this, or just one of those that look complex to draw but they're not. :D Great contrast, lightning, blur and bokeh mixed with water drops. :clap: I'm sure the commissioner was very pleased with the result :)

It turned out to take a few hours less than I thought. The bokeh was all thanks to my blutack :D I love that stuff!!
