Beginnings

This is the drawing that got me hooked on realism.

I was working on this piece and started drawing the trickling water down her arm and it was like fireworks going off in my head as I defined the detail and started to figure out that I could actually make it look like water.  

It was that exciting moment when the pencil I was holding started to do what I wanted it to do. I was 16.
