Graphite on 14x17 canson paper. I get so much control with Derwent graphites; it's easier than Contis or any other pencils. This is the coolest skull I did so far. I copied it from a painting, that it intrigued me on how will I render it with graphite. I think cross hatching is as vital as every brushstrokes delicately forming the various tones in every form. Below is another graphite work copied from the same book. I just thought of putting a rectangular shade on the background to give perspective. It worked with the skull, too. I know, the shot taken below is just aweful.
