Raindrops by bulletinthegun Raindrops by bulletinthegun
I am finally going to include some details!
Time: 9 hours
Medium: HB mechanical pencil and 7B pencil
Paper: smooth white sketch book paper A4
Source photo: [link]

Basically I have always wanted to do something with water and raindrops and since I have loads of time off I though this would be the perfect time. I have also gone back to graphite here. I don't know if I prefer it to charcoal but I do like the control of it and the details it gives. However I love how dark everything goes with charcoal, I hate the shinyness of graphite. I knew it would be right for this picture though because of the amount of detail.

I like the picture in real life, and I love it as a small version on the computer. I don't think the large version does it justice. I might make it smaller but I think it only looks effective very small, the scanner has just shown up so many flaws. I wish I could capture the exactness of the real one.

I thought it was a picture! When I read HB pencil I just HAD to look in full view. Only then you can see it is done with pencil!

This looks absolutely amazing. Water features are so difficult to draw, and yet you've done it perfectly here!
