Surfer dude


graphite pencil, 2.5"x3.5" ($20 USD)

Felt like I should change it up a bit and fiddle with my pencil this weekend. I used my mechanical pencil .05, 2B lead for this one only because I was too lazy to sharpen my other pencils. Still the Bristol vellum paper took it well. I tried this experiment to see how much of my brain filled in the missing lines ... and it filled it up pretty well, which made this a little challenging to draw. My hand kept wanting to fill those gaps!

great range of tone with a mechanical pencil. Probably harder work than sharpening the other pencils but very cool drawing.
