I strive to capture the essence of the people that I draw, and to make realistic portraits. I mainly use graphite pencils, greasy charcoal and charcoal, but also markers and white paint for highlighting. Brands I use are CretaColor and Faber Castell. What I most like to draw is human faces that inspire me, and that I find interesting and unique. I love to watch how the shadows and strokes I make slowly turn into a shape, a face, a human being that almost come alive. The drawings are property of Melody Sundberg. Do not use without permission.
