Hold Back the Night by hypnothalamus Hold Back the Night by hypnothalamus
Hold Back the Night
(the Protector)

Do you wanna be, wanna be
My dying day
My darkest hour
My overdose
Cause that's what you'll be
Just hold back the night

(Sinéad O'Connor - Hold Back the Night)

it's some pastel pencils on plain 80g printer paper - since then it was laminated on wood and sold (my first original to be sold, and, as it meant a lot to me, I still miss it)

Wow. It's a great piece. I love it! :) Do you do most of your works with pastel pencils?

I had a period when I used them a lot, some pastel colored pencils on white paper, not the pastel stick kind.
now I'm more into ink or graphite :D but it depends

How do you start a piece when using ink? :)

you start with pencil, draw softly
when you have the shape you want (even with all the other lines around it) you use ink, precision pen for instance (with pigment inks, check in art shops they have such pens), and only draw those contours that matter
after that you erase the pencil (the pen should remain) - and you're left with a clean drawing
now you can add the shadows with a brush pen or marker
