you never cease to amaze me! i really like the no-blending style, it gives more "strenght" to the drawing, instead of looking so soft. I don't know, it's just my opinion this pic is stunning, great work
Not totally sure, I usually like to work on 2-3 drawings at once. When I get bored of looking at one, or frustrated with it. I'll do something else and come back fresh later. This took me about a week on and off, at a guess probably about 15 hours.
That sounds a lot but I'm often distracted during that time by the internet, drinking tea, looking at a bird out the window etc
