Still Life - Marker Drawing

We needed to use any 2 personal objects, so I chose my favourite watch and my favourite pair of eyeglasses. The composition actually symbolizes the theme of "working against time."

This assignment was unique because we got to use a new medium - markers! It was quite different from working with any other medium, but I got used to it after a few hours of practise. The details in the watch are done in colour pencil, while everything else is done with greyscale markers.
(The composition actually looks like a watercolour painting, doesn't it?)

I was able to achieve a nice, almost-realistic effect (the glasses turned out well, the watch could have been more circular-shaped). But a great work of art, and I'm quite happy with it :D
