Your rendering technique is so foreign to me. I was taught to draw the picture using contours, then begin the shading process. You seem to be able to start at any given point and work your way out flawlessly. I think it's absolutely amazing.

Hello :) Do you use a grid for your drawings? I find that I'm more accurate, but it makes me feel bad because free-handing seems more genuine. Just curious :)

Thanks!

It looks like a photograph. I went from just "Gandalf" to drawings of him, and at first i was confused when i saw it because someone had put a photo in the drawings section O: WELL DONE. 5/5

do most artist work in this fashion of progress? cuz when im doing a picture of a person or example, i draw the parts that costruct the person like the face first with the shadowing and the clothes last or what ever has intricate detail, its almost as if i were doing it in layers

Some people do it differently. for me, I tend to work in an odd manner as well. So keep this in mind when looking at unfinished work on others. Not everyone does it in a cookie cutter manner. It might be easy to you to construct a face through basic features- but to me it is best to start on a hair line- some details and then most times I finish with the facial features. It is the way I construct a face in my mind. If the hair is off, then the whole painting or drawing will be off.

Well, your artline is outstanding. I use pencils too. But nothing even close to your work. I know you have to have heard that time after time, and my opinion only matters next to nothing. But you really are talented. When I look at your art its like hearing Zeppelin after playing a gig with my band at a local bar. You blow me out of the water. No exaggeration. :) Great work!
