Hi steemians sharing with you a recent pen and pencil drawing done on A5 paper based on a sculpture I saw in the Louvre. I used pencils of various shades such as 6B, 2B and HB and pen for the darkest tones in the drawing. I find the sadness in his expression very powerful and wanted to capture this in the drawing. I think I can work on blended the blacks more with the other tones so it looks more realistic. I could use graphite or even darker pencils for this effect. It took me a few hours to do.

Thanks for checking the post out!
