Graphite Pecs

Not completely realistic... some features like the arms, eyes and mouth have been exaggerated to give it a bit more of a cartoon style. Also tried to make the shading a bit more smooth without any definite pencil lines. I enjoy leaving large parts unfinished as it adds a bit of contrast I think. Pencil on A4 paper that has been yellowed in the South African sun. The image above has been desaturated, the original is below (smaller version) but you can't really see the silvery effect of the graphite pencil properly.

Rudy, mon bel ami avec des crayons,

This is the absolute best that I've seen you do. Perfect! And with Patrick Fillion praising you what more could I say? In the words of Oliver Twist:

"Please, Sir, I want some more."

This is excellent. The best thing about it is that it is coy without being cloying. Obviously a very skilled artist. This was my first visit to this blog, and it was a treasure worth digging for. Thanks very much.
