Waiting by mwford Waiting by mwford
It's funny how long some drawings can take to finish. This one was completed over a three week period, mainly just doing a little bit here and there while watching tv. Started with the dress and gradually worked outwards. The scan didn't get all the subtle graphite shading (as usual) but I think it came out okay.

I want to thank:iconauroradreams: for providing such great stock to work with. For that matter, I want to thank all of the stock creators here. The resources this site gives to artists is really astounding.

Great drawing! I love the contrast between the rough stones and silky dress. A DD well deserved.

This is brilliant!  I'm usually not a huge fan of "it looks like a photo" graphite work, but this stands out because, although it's super-realistic, it looks like a drawing.  It looks like art.  Some how it's got a great soft quality to it.  Excellent work.  The DD is well-deserved; I actually thought that before I saw you had been awarded it.

it combines so perfectly emotion and technique. It's one of the best image I ever saw on DA.
