I drew this following a request. It took about 10-12 hours as i was trying to get the background right Arhhh!!!! Tried solid graphite stick as an experiment for the first time, what a mess!!
It's on A3, 200gm white cartridge, using graphite pencils H6 - B9, solid Graphite sticks (Soft, Medium & Hard). kneadable rubber, lots of tissues and a fantastic reference photo.
All credit for this one off reference must go to Chris Weeks, an amazing photojournalist. if you get a chance, go to his deviantart site cweeks.
