Tiger by StephenAinsworth Tiger by StephenAinsworth
Faber Castelle Pencils and tombow mono eraser on Derwent cartridge paper, slightly smaller than A2 in size.

Apologies for not being around for a while...I've been busy on commissions as well as working on this, on and off now for the past couple of months. This is my biggest pencil piece to date and I'm pleased how it's turned out. I'm calling this finished for now but will keep this on the drawing board for a while and no doubt tweek it further.

Thank you!
I stopped timing my work some time ago and each piece is different so there is no usual. I think if you look through my work you will find the hours on a couple of them.
