Yes, this is 100% graphite. No inks, paints, or charcoal was used. I like to grind my graphite crayon into a sandpaper block and then brush it on using a pastel brush. The darkest parts are scrubbed in using a small hard bristle brush. The highlights are dug back out using an electric eraser. If you are a graphite artist, you MUST get yourself one of those! It’s a lifesaver!
He’s all finished! I certainly hope he will be enjoyed in his new home when it arrives! I didn’t get a video of this one because it was the first time I had ever shrank a poster sized image down to an A4 sheet of paper. It was difficult, but I do love a good challenge!
This is definitely not my normal but it has proven to be pretty fun.
This work is a representation of certain religions. From Eve, to the tree of knowledge, to the serpent, to the burning bush, to the crosses, and finally, to its end (shown to the right).
This project was inspired by my need to stand while drawing.
I bought myself a painter’s easel, but they don’t have anything to place your paper on if you want to draw. I went to the paper store and bought a large piece of foam and a large piece of cardboard and fused them together with lamination glue. Then, I just wrapped the edges in a patterned tape.
