Most of my drawings and sketches are done in char-coal or drawing pencils with a lot of smudging and erasing. I am one of those artist that the creation of my vision does not come easy, it's usually a labor of love and it involves a lot of erasing and refining. It takes me quite sometime to finalize my work and I always feel like it is never finished. I usually strive for a realistic look, almost as if the image pops out of the paper. I love the work of Théophile Victor Emile Lemmens a french artist from the 1800's who was famous for his undulating lines in his drawings and paintings and how his images are layered on his work surface, I strive for that effect in my work.
