it's finished.

I'm not happy with this AT ALL but I've spent so long doing that I had to post it. The shaded bits look too dark, I haven't captured the shape properly and I generally hate this drawing. But I'm glad I finished it. It means I can leave it and begin something else. If I had just left it, it would have always been there, waiting to be finished - niggling away at me. But it's done. And I can rest.
**Edited on 29th April. I actually quite like it now. Perhaps it's all the positive feedback (which I'd miss out on if I didn't have a blog!). In answer to your questions, this was done with a black ballpoint pen.

  3. Pippa, honestly I think that you are being hard on your work. But I also know that we are all like that with our stuff be it paint, photography, music, words or even crochet :)

    (and I loved the Mr Pippa handle. I think that that one might stick...)

  5. Hey Pippa, it's great! What are you talking about? I definately don't think that the darker areas are too dark. What medium is this? Ballpoint? It's really good.

    BTW, I haven't forgoetten about your 'prize'. I just take ages in getting around to stuff - but I get there in the end.
