WDE September 1st.



After looking at all the wonderful work being done over at WetCanvas this weekend, I was inspired to get out my graphite drawing pencils and experiment. I made one of the images black and white, adjusted the lighting and contrast a bit and printed it out to use as my reference. Then I used a light box to get an outline and just filled in the tones with graphite. I was pretty pleased with the outcome and will try this again sometime on something else.
