In The Deep by NicksPencil In The Deep by NicksPencil
Bought a large set of Faber-Castell Polychromos colour pencils this week so thought I'd give them a try.

This is loosely based on a self-portrait by the very talented ~Perspeqtive who kindly granted me permission to draw one of her beautiful photos.

Thanks to all who view, favour or comment on this - your support is greatly appreciated :iconcool-smileplz:

this is wonderful :3 especially the hair on the right side of the face, you did a great job drawing the shadows into it. And the colors in this look absolutely amazing.
