This is very great! I just can't consider it as a drawing I think it's just a black n white picture... Great Job Boss!

ive got to congratulate your technic, its great coz i cant see the difference from the real photo but i dont like it too because its just copy, nothing more than drawing skills i cant see art in it. sorry, nothing personal. and sorry for my english ;)

No dear Ann .. your criticism is so welcome .. but i have to mention that everything is based on steps ..
I consider myself kinda beginner.
or maybe advanced ..
but if i wanna be professional and make art as u appreciate .. i have to follow the steps ..
1st - i keep copying art ( to learn something about the proportion and the angles and the shading technique )
2st - i try to draw something hard for me and with high technique and wide area to play with the skills ..
3st - i try to add something from my talent to the work ..
4st - i create ART .. :)

with practicing i can do that ..
if u saw my gallery u would see that i have only 10 works till now.. that means i'm still on the beginning ..
but i really appreciate your opinion so much and ur english is good :D
thanks a lot for sharing advices :tighthug: :heart:

It's a beautiful portrait but if I may point out something - her right eye has a crease beneath it in your drawing that is not nearly so obvious in the original pic. I feel this detracts from what is a lovely piece of artwork. Hope you don't mind me saying.
