11" x 14" graphite pencil 2H, HB, and 6B and a smudge stick was all I had.

Ouch!!!

Some of you have been wondering where I've been. Well this is where. It's pretty much the first personal piece I've done in 30 some years.

When I started this, I wanted to do something Art Nouveau but ended up with something only art nouveau-ish. A couple classic Mucha elements and I then just went with the flow. Kinda happy with it though.
I hadn't used graphite in almost 3 years and then not to this extent. Had to learn how those things worked again.

Got a short story that is about 3/4 done inspired by this pic btw.

As always, critique and suggestions welcome.

    Such a beautiful composition!
    I really love the way the flowing shapes lead the eye around. All the little decorations on the tigress are fantastic too!
