Yoda portrait - realism practice

After I drew the portrait of Hayley Williams, following the advice of viewing the portraits I was to draw as "pure, visual information", I wanted to try drawing something more detailed and challenging. I decided on drawing Master Yoda :D Kinda pleased with this one, actually ^u^ Because the advice works for me, and makes it a lot easier to draw portraits - something I've struggled a lot with earlier. So now that I know what to look for when I draw portraits, all there really is to it is practicing more :) But boy, it's fun to see that I'm finally improving on something again ^-^

I hope this didn't sound like bragging, I really didn't mean it that way ^^; also, I hope you guys like this :)

I would really like to see a drawing of when Sam hugged Spike after he called Chuck to stay over at Sam's house... Do you have it?

It's really nice! :)

One thing, on this page you can listen to music, it's only classical, Piano, strings and Original Soundtracks that are played... I sometimes feel very inspired when I'm on the site and thaught I could share it with you...

I really love the story about Spike, can't wait untill I can read the rest of it! :D

Yoda in the originals: To teach us important lessons.
Yoda in the prequels: To do dumb video game shit.
Absolutely fantastic! Do you accept a padavan or do you already have one?
I MUST learn how to create this homogeneos color work! :-)

Do you think it is possible to do it with a human face? I have polycolor pencils, but they lack dark and broken colors needed for a photorealistic face. And trying to blend using black or grey lead to erratic color coverage.
