Artwork Description

Merlin the wizard, one of my favourite pieces, and easily my most ambitious pencil drawing to date. I really don´t know how I had the patience to do the leaves. The scanner left a lot of the "magic" of the original out, I am afraid.

Great composition and very well done. The detail here is fantastic, and the overall realism is superb!

This is fantastic Monica! He is the perfect Merlin. His expression is a little sad but shows infinite wisdom. I too, like the owl there. He's just the right familiar for this wizard. Wonderful work!

This is so exactly how the older Merlin should look. I always pictured him as a strong, vital man in his youth, and I believed that strength and vitality should carry over into old age. You've endowed him with a wonderful sense of dignity with your masterful pencil work. The owl is a magnificent touch, and it appears, fittingly, to be gazing at the observer.

It is nice when patience payoff and it certainly has in this case. Great drawing and a wonderful pencil-technique. I just love the intense but sad look in his eyes. Very impressing stuff Monica.

Very nice work. This piece has a classical feel to it. Great job especially on the beard, face and leaves.

Art at its best.
