-Graphite Dreikon- by Silvolf -Graphite Dreikon- by Silvolf
So, I went to stay with my friend LittleRedRahRah in Ireland and went to college with her a couple of days. The second day was art class and while everyone else was working on their human portraits (I have a diploma in fine art animal portraits but I can't draw realistic humans worth shit), she gave me a HB pencil and some sheets of A3 paper and I just drew the first thing that came into my head, taking a lot of time with it so it would last me the several hours the lesson lasted. I didn't use an eraser either. This was just drawn straight out and then I messed about adding fur details and such so I'd make good use of the time. I got the whole thing done aside from the tail, which I finished at home with my own HB pencil. I always use a mechanical pencil when I draw, I'm not so used to using the traditional kind anymore and I remember now how annoying it is to keep sharpening it.
I'm still working on my Dreikon tarot deck btw, just....very slowly in between commissions and concept art for my next book. And comics and personal art.

Sorry for the bad pic quality, I had to take a photo of it because the paper is too big to fit in the scanner :XD:

Thank you! Yeah it is hard, and having to sharpen it was a real pain. I'm ok with coloured pencils but drawing with a graphite one? Nope lol!

Surprisingly I think you accidentally added some dynamic shading by taking a photo of it. It looks even better, very impressed with how it all came out

Love this :) sometimes I take pictures of my traditional pics too due to my paper being to big for my scanner

Cool I bet everyone was impressed. I hate normal pencils. I have been drawing with a mechanical pencil since 1984 and can't do it any other way. Hehe. I love mine.

Actually no one took any notice. They were doing a human portrait class and no one even commented on my pic. Not that I expected them to. They may have noticed if I'd drawn an amazing graphite picture of myself :XD:
Lol that's all my life! When I was a kid I couldn't get on with them because I tended to press very hard and I'd break them.
