Drawing Guns n Roses

posted in: Work in Progress 4

I've recently finished a drawing of the group Guns 'n' Roses and, as usual, took photos as the drawing progressed so I've created a slide show.

Having sketched out the basic outlines, I worked my way across the drawing, adding detail to the individuals. Once I had covered the whole drawing, I then went over several times adding depth, darkening tone and picking out highlights. For this reason, the last few slides at first glance may appear very similar, but it's the working up of these layers which make a difference to the final drawing.

Let the slide show run or click the side arrows to move the images along.

    It’s magic what you can do with just a pencil! Great picture, worth the perseverance.

      Hi Craig
      Sorry for taking so long to come back to you – I’m just returning to work after the Christmas break.
      The original has sold – it was drawn to commission.
      If you’re still interested, I do have prints at £75 or you could commission your own.
