I'm Speechless. That's amazing. Such a hard worker with that many hours invested. I need to learn that amount of patience on a drawing. Was this from a reference image?

DAMN!! This is on point!! I remember using a piece of rolled up paper towel to smudge until an art teacher convinced me to just use different weight pencils.........in retrospect he was a shmuck so i might just take it back to that style. Cheaper than buying thos damn pencils anyway!! LOL Great work!!

I hope you don't mind. If it bothers you I'll take it down. It's just such an awesome drawing I couldn't resist wanting to see it with color! :hug:

Yeah I guess it's fine. I didn't take the original photo that inspired this drawing - so you can do whatever you want with it ^^

nice coloring job btw, it's nice to see it come to life even more so.

Awesome! :D Thank you, David! I'm so glad it's ok! :hug: I usually ask for permission first but this one inspired me so much that I couldn't help but want to add some color to it. heheh If you ever want me to color any more of your pencil work so I can practice my coloring, please let me know. :) Your work is stunning and it would be an honor to put some color to more of your lines! :heart:

How do you get it to come out so smooth and the hair all detailed?
Reply
:icondavidsadler:
DavidSadler Featured By Owner May 31, 2011  Professional Filmographer
just go over and over the same spot, smudge, smooth, repeat. It's just layers and layers of pencil gradually building up tone.
