Revival - Traditional Art by secrets-of-the-pen Revival - Traditional Art by secrets-of-the-pen
This piece took me about 2 years to finish and it was quite the journey. I've never had a piece that changed so much every time I sat down with it. It really showed me how much I grew over those two years!

Do you apply spray fixative to your drawings? I have used fixative in my drawings and the white pastel is darkened and I have to retouch again and leave it like this...

Oh, I know that struggle all too well! I tested out a BUNCH of different fixatives to see which one would least dim all my chalk work. "Blair Spray Matte Fixative - Odorless" is the best when combined with chalk and I won't use anything else. I get it through dickblick . com :D
