Dreams_Pencil Portrait

The exhibit is still going on, I thank you all for your whole hearted support.To see some pics, CLICK HERE.
I haven't been sitting idle,though .I have drawn two more portraits, again the reference were provided by my photographer friend Vikram. Sharing first one here,You may find it a bit different than my previous works; the reason being a new,smoother paper resulting in smoother skin tones, and use of charcoal for darker areas.
I do hop,that you like the 'new look'!
Have a nice day.
Pencil and charcoal, A3 sized 200 gsm acid free cartridge paper.

  8. Well wonderful sketch, u have given very smooth skin texture and beard look stunning. I,m wondering does particular paper really make a difference coz i always use normal sketch paper but by looking at ur sketch i beleive quality of paper also matters.

  13. @ Mani, paper does matter when you are going into details.Try to find a thicker paper like 150 GSM and you would be able to achieve much more!( not to forget a lot of patience!)
