Done and Dusted!!! My Latest Pencil Drawing!!!

in #artlast year

Hello Steemians!!!
Happy Steemfest!!!
This is my lastest drawing of a fast and rising artist called Mohbad. His music is really good and I enjoy it. He's going to be performing live at a concert in my town so I got this commissioned work by the organizers so they can present him a portrait since he had none. I'm proud to say my work is going to be his first portrait and that means so much to me.
I took my time and spend almost my whole day trying to complete this portrait. The picture I got as a reference was highly detailed so I had no reason to deliver less. And since the drawing is going to be a unique one, I took my time and paid attention to the details.
The materials I used in drawing this portrait are a bunch of pencils ( 2H, 2B, 4B, 6B, and charcoal pencils). I also used a brush and mono zero eraser for blending and detailing ( face and hair). Here are some shots of my progress while making the drawing.

Normally, I don't use grids but had to use grids here as a guide here to present a perfect work

Here I used the mono zero eraser for the details of the face.

I will be framing this tomorrow and waiting patiently for Thursday when I'll present it to him on stage.
Thank you for reading and following up on this drawing.
Share me your thoughts on this my friends and have a lovely night rest.

What a great work ! I love the way you used the mono eraser to get some fine details, I've tried it a couple of times but I can't manage to get as crisp details as you've got ! what's your secret ? :3

Thank you🙂. Nice to meet an artist here who had tried my medium. It takes patience to use the mono zero, just don't rush it.🙂

Thank you☺️. It's alot of work but to get the best results, I have to be patient.
