where's the damn coffee? by Just-a-Witness where's the damn coffee? by Just-a-Witness
A bit of self punish...uuh..realistic drawing attempt!
various pencils, many hours. A sepia filter would look good on it but i decided to leave it as it is.

Pretty unusual technique, I can maybe guess but is most clever to ask, what is this?

what is that you find unusual about the technique? it is made with many layers of crosshatching with a soft pencil :)

I would love to know how you get that certain pattern in your drawing! Perhaps it's the texture of the paper you used?

Honestly, I cannot see anything 'wrong' with this picture, except maybe some very small details here and there (buttons on the shirt of the man to the left, completion of the jacket fold on the woman in the middle, perhaps a little bit too thin of a right side to the man with a mustache at the right). Even those things are so minute, they are not missed at all, in my view. :thumbsup:

I just love the work you put into this! :heart: How long did it take you? Was this based off of a photo or did you work from real life models?

Great work!

thank you for the thoughtful comment:)
I use textured paper, yes, watercolor paper in particular.Also i don't do blending so the rough pencil strokes are very evident at places!Your observations are very much correct, i see various lil mistakes too!Thing is i don't have the patience to correct them, i am more worried about gross things like body proportion, contrast, etc :)

i am very glad that you like it!! i used an internet photo reference and spent at least 4 2,5hour sessions:D

Shame it's not in bigger size, I could see all details :)
I like this technique, everything look clear and nice detailed. Man's suit is very realistic!
I think that contrast between foreground and background should be a little higher, but now this work still looks beautiful :D
