This was one of my first full shading drawings using pen & ink. I find the process of building up the layers of shading using only dots a soothing and relaxing process. I put some music on iTunes and pick a spot to start shading. I work in fairly small areas at a time and gradually bring the whole piece together. The whole drawing probably took around fifteen hours spread over five or six days.
I kind of like the rhythmic tapping of the pen on the paper, I often find myself tapping along to the music in an almost hypnotic state.
