Default A new drawing

I've made a start on a new drawing. I'm holding steady at an average of one or so per year. Prolific as fuck!

😄

I've just realised that the Angus and Lemmy drawings done previously were on fairly shitty cheap paper and also using cheap pencils. The Jim Morrison was on expensive paper with cheap pencils. This one is on expensive paper with cheap pencils too. I've noticed that the graphite is uneven and some of the softer pencils leave very dark 'scratches' of graphite on the paper. I'll have to invest in a good set for my next one...probably next year...!

It looks nice, are you an artist?
I wish that I can be as creative as you are.

I draw a bit now and again. This will be my fourth portrait in the same number of years. If that makes me an artist then I am [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.volkszone.com/VZi/images/vzismilies/lol.gif[/IMG] Here's a couple of ones I did previously.

EDIT - I've no idea how they ended up sideways!
