Ash Sunrise
Graphite... Mars Lumograph 2H-8B, mechanical 0.3, 0.5 and 0.7 2H, HB and 2B, and Koh-I-Noor graphite sticks, over Strathmore Drawing Paper 9×12" (11×14 with margins).

Yours truly doesn't want to know anything about graphite for a long while. Not exactly my favourite technique. But I wanted to prove myself I could do something that kinda resembles the work of the great graphite masters from here from dA. Everybody does graphite, why shouldn't I?

The model here is the lovely Ash (*mylovestory), having taken as reference the lovely photo from hers called 'Sunrise' (hence the title "Ash Sunrise" which seemed cool to me). She says she's one of the sexiest people in dA and I totally agree. Go take a look at her gallery, she is a different kind of beauty, that's why I liked her and asked her to draw her photo, and she kindly accepted, so here you are. Thanks a lot to Ash for allowing me to draw her, it's been a pleasure! :)

Thanks in advance for all the faves and watches. I may not thank you personally for every fave but all comments will be replied to.

I'm glad you like it Karen... :)

But I 'm not so satisfied with it. I used the wrong paper (too much tooth which made it way too grainy) and a technique which is totally not my forte (graphite). I guess I'll just stick to my pastels for a while.

You reached the goal. Now keep going, don't stop here. Believe... and you will be amazed where that will lead you. I know you have what it takes in your head. Everybody does. It's up to them whether they will use it or not. ;)

I wish I could master graphite like the great graphite masters, but I'm no fan of graphite.

You're definitely right on this one - she -is- one of the sexiest people on dA. I will totally agree with you on this one, too.
I think you've done yet another great job in capturing this young lady to life, and she is full of life, indeed.

Graphite... is not fun. Really, not the most fun thing in the world at all. The stuff gets everywhere and can be hard to control, after all. But for all that can be said about graphite, I still think you've done a pretty good job with it. You might not want to hear of it for a while yet, but I still think that after you've recovered from the initial distaste, it's worth your time experimenting with it on and off.

Well done, my friend. Well done.
