Gandhi in Pastel by BeenThereB4 Gandhi in Pastel by BeenThereB4
Okay! So normally I only post photoshop/Anime work on here, but I did this pastel portrait of Gandhi a few nights ago, and I decided to post it : D

~Done in Pastel, Approx 3 hours... that's all~
(I might give it to my AP world teacher as an end-of-year present lol)
....Is the sound of one hand clapping a snap?

Everytime I see realistic deviation in your inbox, I always think, "Naw, that's not her." lol
I didn't know you could do such good realism. I can't believe it. :XD:
How did it take for this?

Lmao I'm full of surprises haha-
I've been taking 3 hour art classes for only pastel and charcoal work every saturday for around a half a year now lawl. Theyre fun, so sometimes when I'm done with all my homework I just want to pastel @ home for my own enjoyment haha... Hmph, this maybe took... 3.5 hours? I'll add that in the description , since people like asking that lol

Oh, I normally wake up at 6:00 in the morning, so today I decided to stop by on the computer : )
Ah, I think your art would look really beautiful with pastels! You should try drawing some african landscapes with them : O It'd look mega pretty ^^
Haha, nope, I did it in 2 days... I die on the inside if I have to draw too much in one sitting!

That looks so realistic, good job! :) I admire Gandhi, he's a great man. TOTALLY give it to your teacher. Extra credit!

PS if you have two people doing a one-handed clap together they actually end up high-fiving.
