I don't have this one added to my gallery yet, just finished it around Christmas time, in time to give to a friend.
It's a pencil drawing from an old photo of his grandfather. He was very close to his grandfather, and had a lot of respect for him. The grandfather
passed away last year, so I thought it would be a great Christmas present (made the guy cry actually....mixed emotions there, but glad he liked
His mom then passed away about a week before our gift exchange...so of course, it gave even more meaning (guess I have to do one of mom now soon...)
He has my utmost condolences, of course. She was in bad health, but I know I'll take it hard when my mother passes...(still a ways off, I hope).
I hope to get some more posted soon....
EDIT: Since it's been a while, for those wanting to know the tools, a variety of artist pencils ranging from HB, 2B, 4B, 6B and Ebony pencils, on
Strathmore Bristol Board (Vellum). Personally, I think this is one of my best ones, so I'm glad I'm getting better vs. worse at this, lol!
