Laureus in the midst of circles

This last week has seen me spin around in the strangest circles...keeping me both on my toes and at the loosing end of time management.

Amazingly, there have been scribbles and crosshatching appearing on the drawing board.
My subjects' name is Laureus.
He's a rising star.
A gorgeous model.
An inspiration.





These are the first 10 hours into the drawing. I've decided to go big.
The tools used:
  • surprisingly only a 2B with a touch of 6B for the very dark areas.
  • Layers, lots of layering.
  • Mellotex paper (in Super white) available from Mike Sibley
I'm not sure how many more circles I'll spin this week... hopefully not too many and I'll be able to post an update soon.
Now ... what time is it?
