Amazing!

To even attempt this kinda of detail, do you guys think it's all about the size of the piece? The bigger you go, the more detail, the more detail, the more realistic it will become?

I could imagine it would take me at least a month of drawing all day to even attempt a graphite drawing that size lol. I'm contemplating going a bit bigger than i'm currently using..although i definitely haven't the guts or the patience to attempt anything like this yet. :)
