Hello everyone, I hope you are well, first of all happy 2020 for all of you, I hope this new year will be successful for me and my family as well as for all of you. My absence from the platform was due to the fact that I had emigrated from Venezuela to Peru. I was in that country for several months but the truth is that it did not go very well, so I returned to my country of origin.

I got in touch with my best friend @roadstories who invited me to this platform a long time ago, but I had not found my way until now (according to him). A few days ago he saw one of my drawings published on my social networks and almost killed me for telling me that I had a gift for art in my hands, that I should share it with you here at Steemit, so yesterday I took one of those neoclassical stories that I like so much and inspired me to carry it out.

This is a freehand drawing, with graphite pencil making gray scales and black colors to give a depth effect to such an exceptional work.

In the opposite sense to the artist, particularly this drawing that took me 2.5 hours to make has remained this way.

In a future pots I will show you the process of drawing the baby. I know I need to polish the technique much more, but this is a passion of mine that I had very hidden, I hope you like and appreciate.

How could I not kill you? lol.

We've known each other for a long time, we're like brothers and I didn't know you drew, so much so that you told me you didn't know what to do in steemit and look at the surprise. Great job Amiiii.
