Q&A with Ben Collins-Sussman

mceciob2428021 asked:
Was this drawn on cardboard?I don't like the light transparency Lacks power.
Ben Collins-Sussman answered:
It was drawn with graphite on a small piece of highly-textured canvas. It definitely needs way more contrast. Or even better, I should learn to use charcoal. :-)
