Speechless. Your artwork is really inspiring.  How long have you been sketching. wish i could draw like this someday.

Thank you very much :D. The overall sketch takes an average of one day,
about 8 hours or 10 and it is the most important process, needs to be perfect.
Then for each part, is necessary to refine before start the shadows and final details, so it's undefined

Thank you :). well, I do not count the hours, it takes about one month to finish, I think something around 50-70 hours :)

Thank you very much :D
I made the blur with a stump blender, on youtube you can find about it and how to use.
About the dark, I use -4b-6b-8b and 9b cretacolor pencils, they can made those deep black areas;
try to drawing making turnings with the pencil around your fingers to prevent the point to knead, the point needs to be always hard and sharp.
