You're drawings are always amazing, I really like these recent portraits because the lighting is so interesting. Nobody really draws portraits with so much in shadow but still managing to keep sensitivity rather than black mess. Great work!

This is truly amazing. All those little hairs...!! :D
Why do you use a mech. pencil only? Would it not be helpful to use an 8b pencil for the dark areas?

Wow... This is stunning! :D The shading is perfect-it's so smooth. The way you manage to put in every single highlight so well is amazing. This is a great example of perfection! :P It's very photoesque. You have such amazing talent, sir! I can't wait to see what you come up with next. :)
