This started out as a scetch for a painting, on watercolor paper.  I got a little carried away with the shading on her skin, which incidently turned out to be descent, so I decided to keep it as a drawing. I kept thinking of the finished product in color, making it difficult to focus on the more detailed lines and shading, which so happened to be a challenge of its own, a detailed drawing on course watercolor paper. In the end the shading on her breasts, and face, made sticking to graphite worth it.

    Wow - I very much like the way you've shaded this one! Definitely very soft for being on watercolour paper!

        Of course I noticed it! It stands out, to me.

        If you're having trouble with being noticed, the best way to make yourself seen is to look at other people's work and leave comments. Trails of comments are the very best way to get publicity. Smile

    I think the delicate shading is wonderful in this picture. I really like it uncolored, so I'm glad you took it where you did.
