Finally finished this one! I am utterly proud of the result, I'm not going to hide it. :D

So, let's talk about the process... Which is pretty straightforward:

- I used a grid to draw the initial outline of the drawing with a mechanical pencil, 0,5 HB.
- Erased the grid.
- Shaded with a ballpoint pen.

Tools (it's pretty easy :)):
- Winsor&Newton A5 sketchbook 170gsm;
- Mechanical pencil, 0,5 HB;
- Regular eraser (to erase the grid);
- Black Bic Crystal Medium ballpoint pen.

Time: Around 30 hours.

You said, "I am utterly proud of the result, I'm not going to hide it."
Don't understand this remark. It's not a familiar phrase. :sun::skull:

I mean that I am not going to hide the fact that I am very proud of the result. Maybe it's not an expression you use in the USA... Basically I'm telling that I am proud of the result, that's all...
