Beehive by gabbyd70 Beehive by gabbyd70
Well I made this between some commissioned work. : ) I drew this with mechanical pencils (3H and 4B lead) on vellum canson paper & I used a photo ref of a model named Emma Maclaren (Materials: [link])

I really enjoy doing graphite/mech. pencil drawings. I just don’t do them very often as they are much more time consuming then pastel drawings...and they also start to hurt my neck after a while because of working on small details. :XD: I enjoyed drawing this though =]

:heart:
