Most of my drawings usually take me a few days to complete because of the amount of detail that i put into them.   I decided to do this drawing on the spur of the moment.  It Measures 5″x7″ in size and my focus was the eye.   I added much of the detail to the eye and left the legs with just simple blending.   It took me around 2 hours to complete so im pretty happy with the result for that amount of time.  Just leave a comment if you have any questions.

    Maybe I’ve missed it, but this is white charcoal on black paper?? It looks like a photograph! Amazing how much detail you put into a 5×7 inch piece.

      thank you so much. the best advice i can give you is for you to keep drawing. As for adding realism to your drawings, make sure you first study what you are drawing so you know as much as possible about it. The more you know abut it, the more detail you can add to the drawing. Using multiple reference photos helps with this.

    I have always wondered how do you do the texture of the eye.

      thank you. They usually take me a couple of days, even at this size. The goal for this one was the effect. Having the eye focused and the rest out of focus. This effect can easily be added to any drawing, just blur the area that you want out of focus. Its a great way to suggest distance and perspective.

        thanks for the tip 🙂

        i was wondering what was the object you used in the movie that looked like a piece of foil or something.
        do you use this to keep your image from smearing while working on it?

          Yep, you’re right, it’s used to not to smear the pencil all over your drawing 🙂
