'OLD MAN' graphite drawing

I'm pretty pleased with how his has turned out, and in my opinion this is now the most realistic drawing I've ever done and one step closer to my ultimate goal of 'hyperrealism'. The combination of charcoal for the darks, cartridge paper and that the subject is an old man has made it much easier to get the realism in this drawing.

And although I've drawn an old man before ('ian mckellen'), this is actually my first real try at drawing a really old person. As ian mckellen although old, did not have to many wrinkles, which this old man has plenty of. And as I've said before, the easiest way to make a drawing look realistic is to draw an old person because of all the wrinkles and folds. The real test for me now is to try and keep this level of realism in my other drawings. This will be a lot tougher to achieve, especially in young females who have very smooth skin.

Here are some of my other graphite drawings.
