Patience - Lines by beastofoblivion Patience - Lines by beastofoblivion
Part of an ongoing personal project from the spring, one of two pieces that were on my wall incomplete for months. This is the first piece, in the pencil stage. Originally on yellowish paper, altered in PS for visibility.

14x17"

Hahaha, good thing I'm Catholic. *lends points* XD

For no smudging, I find mechanical pencils with .5 lead and decent paper do the trick. Working on the wall, at an angle, or just really carefully also works. :3

I don't either; I see two sets of hands though? XD Maybe it's a cherubim (of the singularly plural sort).
