Old drawings refound

I finally went through some of my many drawing folders. I knew I had lots of unfinished larger drawings from when we lived in Østerbro. I almost forgot this one, though at the time I started it I really liked how it was going.

After receiving a lovely message from Nihrida the other day I realised I need to get back to graphite once in a while too. I don't know why I stopped using it, I think I just got caught up in all the other mediums available all of a sudden. Graphite pencils and cheap printer paper were where it all started for me. Very simple yet effective.

I finally started using the drawing table bought some time back. I just realise now I should have had a drawing table long ago. It makes it so much easier to work on these large drawings and I don't have to be as careful bending the edges since I'm not curled up at the sofa.

High five to cheap pencils and paper!

I still can't work on a drawing board to this day. I need to be flat out, hunched over, tongue stuck out, smudging and creasing. I just can't get comfy with them. It's a curse ;)

I adore your graphite drawings and this one is just amazing. And I'm just repeating myself. =D

Lianne I can relate, there is just something about being curled up at the sofa all over the drawing. Unfortunately because of me doing just that for years my back is having problems now... so I strongly advice to switch to a table at some point to avoid the same pain.

Nihrida, I don't mind the repeat, I always love your comments and thanks much :)

Thanks Lapetite, I think I lost interest in them for some time but I hope to get back using them regularly... or at least finishing all the ones I have unfinished :)
