I just finished this one last night round 2am 3/27/10. It took kinda long to finish, but I'm proud of how it came out. Just doing these pictures for therapy. Still missing me some Mikey.

The real size of this picture is 30" long by 22" wide.

The belt is like perfect. This is basically as good as a photograph.
I hope you're able to use your talents in a career (if you aren't already).

Sorry I haven't been on this site in a while. But I'm on Facebook and my page is called "Michael Jackson Was SO Misunderstood & The Media Lies Too Much" and it pays tribute to Michael and his innocence. Join if you want to www.facebook.com/pages/Michael…

The only thing I can say is if you like graphite pencil, t's the best. And Bristol board type paper is great for blending in for shading. And stumps are those packed tight paper looking pencil things for blending and shading. But the only reason why my work looks almost real is because I use the grid method. I look at a picture I find, I use my ruler by making equal sized boxes all over the picture. I measure the picture on the paper and transfer the size to a big blank Bristol paper sheet, and I start drawing boxes on that blank paper and draw every single detail from the picture onto the blank paper. It's all by using your eyes. It's hard to explain, but it takes long when it comes to the detail, but the end product is great. That's why I think it's funny when people think it's a real photo because the grid method does make your artwork look real.

The whole picture took 2 weeks to finish, but the belt took half of the week. I couldn't wait til I was done when I was working on that belt. But I was very very happy when it was finished.
