Drawing(?): Exakta VX

Until I really got into film photography a few years back, I used to draw and paint a lot. I still enjoy drawing and painting from time to time, but photography is just a lot more fun (for me), and has become my artistic medium of choice. People like to call me a "photographer" because I do photography, but I view myself more-so as an "artist who practices photography." Today I got pretty bored after work, and decided to draw a sketch of my Exakta VX. I used a mechanical pencil on a Blick sketch pad. It probably took me about two hours. The perspective's a little wonky in places, but I actually quite like it. If you want perspective to be perfect, just take a photograph.

Thanks for looking!
