John Ruskin a very well designed piece, i personally like the fading effect that is given, this is done by the artist using less and less ink/paint for the drawing cutting down in stages and allows marks made to be more interesting and look good.

This drawing demonstrates the beautiful detail that can be created with pencil. I also like the warmth and life that pencil creates, compared to the deliberate industrial feeling of pen and ink.
