Rising by SimonVelazquezArt Rising by SimonVelazquezArt
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Rising once again from the darkness into a new era of glory.

2013 Dodge Dart in front of a super moon.

My entry for the Dodge Inspired by You Contest. Better late than never I guess.

Materials used & time spent:

Done with a b lead mechanical pencil, a 7h and an 8b graphite pencil, eraser and cotton.

Roughly 25 hours spent in total... Although I did kind of lose track.

Paper size is 65 x 50cm (26.6" x 19.7"). Nothing fancy.

Please view in full view for details (not highest quality because it's a photo not a scan).

Please feel free to comment :D

I respect you for that. For managing such awesome detail with a pencil and imagination. As for me, it would have taken too long and my laziness would have attacked me. So, yeah, once again: I. Really. Respect. You. For. That! *A*

This is absolutely beautiful. You blended the graphite so smoothy and the contrast and the darks and lights and the highlights and the depth and and and it's too perfect! Especially those headlights! And the composition is so dynamic and striking. Awesome work!
