Wow. And wow! His face seems to offer a real challenge to artists, there is so much character there, even a slight flaw stands out. No flaws here though (the eyes are especially good) forget about the "Deviant" part, this is pure art!

Amazing work!
I like how you've smoothed everything; is that the velum?

Thanks, i really can't say. I have never used the carbon before and i just winged it. I don't think the paper had anything to do with it though. I do blend a lot which did help with this one by using tortillons and brushes.

Thanks for getting back to me about your drawing techniques. I've just googled tortillon and it seems a better way to blend than using scrunched up tissue paper, (I tried cotton buds too). Gonna get me some tortillons!

You're welcome, you can make your own by using normal cartridge paper and roll it up to get a nice point on the end. Tape the other end so it stays together and it will do you ok. After a few practice ones you will be making them like a pro :D
