Living Rock by CamWaters Living Rock by CamWaters
Pen and Ink drawing.
Hope people still like black and white images.
There's loads of detail in this drawing and took a while to do. Some people have called me mad, but it was actually a very realaxing time. I loved drawing it.

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-02-25
Marlin Perkins would be damn proud of Living Rock by ~CamWaters, as it captures an almost surreal mix of wildlife and backdrop. All the stippling is not only consistent, but so prominent my wrist hurst just pondering the effort required. ( Suggested by Aldalambe and Featured by zeruch )

I have done stippling drawings before. They were much simpler than this. They drove me crazy. With all this detail and shading, how did you not loose your mind?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
