Well, this is the day!

This drawing was started over 4 years ago, my most ambitious project to date.. many things have happened since starting drawing this - unfortunately one of those was losing interest in finishing it.

This has taken over 60 hours (I really haven't taken 4 years to draw this, I gave up 3.9 years ago and then started again last week)

This piece has been through 4 girlfriends, 1 job, 3 houses, various lifestyle changes..

I'm so happy that it's finished though!!!

Size is A1 (sorry Americans, don't know the size in your crazy culture.. basically huge!) and apologies for the scan - it's very hard to scan in 4 parts on the largest scanner you can find.. A3 there are some parts that don't match up - I'll have to scan it again properly there's parts that are darker than the rest too..

I'm not sure when to start the next one, I've attached the paper to the drawing board already - but seeing as how I've now been here for 5 years, I'm guessing that the next one will be another 5 years down the line!

Thanks to everyone for their support on this, for prodding me to finish it!

Enjoy, please, this is a (in my honest opinion) great piece of art

In the flesh it's much cooler.. so much to see - sadly I gave the original to a woman I won't be seeing again :(
You are talking about your ex right? Don't worry about that, even I have lost drawings because of ended relationships. I'm still glad I've still have a picture of it, cause I did lose some good sketches because they were given away by my teacher in school (not that I had a relationship with him :P). And keep your head up ;), love will arrive back some day.

I'm not looking for love right now, it's no loss..
Never look for love, you have to let it happen to you. It's more like waiting untill that moment is there that you feel in love and want to be in love.
