‘Johnny Cash Finger’ is my first all-graphite effort.
I wasn’t going for any degree of realism here (the only thing that looks half-way realistic is the ear); not my best work by far, but it was fun to experiment. What makes this drawing even more insane is that I didn’t draw it per se, I sort of brushed it on. I didn’t use any blending tools aside from my old eye liner brush.
I keep trying to do something with graphite even though my main complaint with it is that it’s not black enough. It will be a while before one of my graphite portraits looks like a photograph!
