You're welcome,Danny:) What technic is it? Blending?

Cloudstrive Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
Sure thing! There was a lot of shading and blending, I press very hard and I used 8B to achieve dark areas and I think that really makes it pop.. When I'm blend her skin I don't go in with pencils, instead I blend graphite on another piece of paper, use a blending cloth to pick up the graphite on that piece of paper and then transfer it over to my drawing.. it makes it look very even and blends smoothly.. And thanks to the large size paper I was able to squeeze more detail and texture into my drawing, so everything comes together more realistically ^^

this took me around 40 -50 hours counting the scanning process because i have to scan it in 4 sections and stitch it back together. do you think it look a little bit pixelated? should i remove the white frame?

Great drawing.Superb realism. You've captured all of the different textures perfectly.
I'm most impressed by the tree,trying to capture all the little patterns and grooves and making it all come together and look good is insanely hard.

Well done! :strong:
