ChanTea's Wedding by disdaindespair ChanTea's Wedding by disdaindespair
this is a commissioned drawing from my cousin chanthee.

i used graphite (background and skintone), charcoal (tuxedo) and carbon pencils (hair). i worked backwards this time around and layed down the background first. the veil was the toughest part-- i ended up just laying down light layers of graphite and using my eraser pencil and started erasing parts that are supposed to be white and thick pleats. all in all i am pleased with it.

-- meks

duration: 32 hours

media: graphite, charcoal and carbon pencils

size: 14" x 20" arches watercolor paper

GREAT drawing - the darks are really black (her hairline is especially good) and the sheer fabric of the veil very nicely done - :iconReliefplz: - you've earned some relaxation - Judy
