Subject #7 by MalcolmShortt Subject #7 by MalcolmShortt
18"x22"
Graphite pencils 3H/HB/2B/4B, Blending stump & brush, Kneadable eraser, Tombow elastomer eraser.
Strathmore 500 series bristol board (smooth plate finish)

This is my entry for The National Open Art Competition UK. Unfortunately it wasn't selected for the shortlist but I'm pleased with the piece as it personally represents a big leap in scale, detail and patience. It is roughly twice the size of my previous work and I learnt a lot working on this beast.

I'd like to thank Samantha Barbour for kindly letting me use and modify her original photo as reference... blind-eyephotography.deviantar…

Detail and stage-by-stage shots will be up soon on my website/blog and Facebook page...

This is one of the finest pieces of photorealistic pencil drawing I've ever seen. For once in my life I'm really struggling to see that it's not a photo.  I can't believe you didn't even get through to the short list for the NOA, I'll be very interested to see what did. You've got a new fan !!!:) (Smile)
