Dreamers and Friends by dmbgal07 Dreamers and Friends by dmbgal07
*tried to get rid of the shiney parts...still working on it because now the black part doesn't look drawn, but I don't know how else to get rid of the shinyness....*

Finished portrait of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. This is my favorite time period with the two, perfect friends and amazing artists. This is how I'll always remember the two together. Took around 15 hours to do. The scanner made some of the black parts shinny so I will try to fix that sometime soon. I really enjoyed drawing this, and my mom loves it so it's not a bad gift for her after all.

mechanical pencil and graphite stick on cream colored paper, 10"X14"

I entered in the contest had here- [link] and tied for first place! thank you very much Jess!
