    I see the "Other art" section is gone. So here this one goes.

    It started out as just a test to see how well the Canson XL Bristol paper takes graphite and it evolved into this. Subject was just a random portrait I got off Google. Pencils were Faber-Castell 9000. Mostly 2B, 4B and 6B and the very dark is General's 9XXB. Quite a bit of paper stump work as well. What I quickly realised was that I could use quite a lot of my airbrush know-how with graphite as well. No texture stencils but erasing an layering is possible. Time to finish it is the same as an airbrush piece. Size is A4.
