Skull Love by pbird12 Skull Love by pbird12
I've finally finished a drawing :dance:

This one is one of the prizes for Simones :icondreamarian: HooDoo Contest fav.me/d5dys59

I used the stock reference Simone gave us for the :icondraw-along: part of the contest and a random desktop wallpaper, which is not mine. Whoever wins, I swear this looks better in real life, I'm not so good with the scanning :P

Materials:
A4 Bristol Board (it's very slightly smaller than A4)
Graphite 4H-5B and an 8B Lumo
Erasers
BluTack
Some homemade texture for the stone due to lack of sandpaper :D
Time: Not very sure, but about 12-14 hours at a guess

There are some WIPs here if you like these things -
Thank you very much for having a look
Paula :heart:
