Experimenting with the 'No Lines' Technique

I have seen the 'no lines' technique on the internet and have been keen to have a go myself so yesterday I fiddled with my printer settings and somehow managed to print this great Mo Manning image light enough to have a crack at it ( I have no idea how I did the technical bit so don't ask!).

I wanted a softer look than pen so used my new Spectrum Noir pencils and blending fluid. I need a lot more practice with both the pencils and the technique but for a first attempt I was relatively pleased. Hopefully the young musician it is for will be too!


I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
