pencil drawing

Fri Oct 12, 2012 8:11 pm

Thought I'd upload a photo of a drawing I did last week, bad weather is keeping me indoors so I dusted off my sketch pad. Sorry for the photo quality, Im unsure how to reproduce a drawing faithfully for my computer but gave it a go. My first pencil drawing in a couple of decades, so a little rough but enjoyed drawing it so I'm going to get back into it for a while and see where it goes.Critique welcomed, rip away. lol Drawn with a 4h 2h hb 2b and 4b pencil, Would love to see other artwork from this message boards members?

The drawing is absolutely great. Are you going to frame it?

No, not that good yet,[but thanks] I stumbled across a teaching method on Youtube and it inspired me to pick up a pencil again after a looooong absence. Just tryng to build from here into some better work, could become a nice hobby but for now just learning. Thought itd be interesting to get some critique here, its about the most knowledgable E board on the planet, and if my attempts not up to scratch Im sure there would be plenty of pointers lol.

Nice job Eddie. To be pedantic, if you were going for a 1968 Elvis, he was combing his hair right to left by then. You have it the other way.

Hahaha thanks TJ , new I could rely on someone here!! Found a photo online and liked it so went with it as it was. If it was a mirror image I'd have left it as its a basic rule to draw with light coming from the left to right.
Thanks RJM!
