Portrait study- graphic pencil drawing by Polaara Portrait study- graphic pencil drawing by Polaara
i posted this onto my facebook a couple of days ago, so ive decided to study portraiture for my last year at school, so here's me doing a little realism for a change - im not as used to graphite as i am with colored pencil so your feedback is welcomed!

i met this woman in the park she let me take her picture for this project. I know i dont often uplode school work or non related anime drawings but i thought i may as well show you guys since its my progression as an artist :)

Its not the best quality photo since my camera went bust

Awesome work!! The toning and level of detail in your drawing is astounding and has always amazed me. Actually your YouTube channel is what inspired me to start drawing, and thank you for that!

Daaang, it almost seems like I can touch it. I love the details, they're so "alive" I guess is the word.

Very detailed even when your camera went to burst mode.  I'm just speechless about the quality of your work.

Wow. You're superb at realistic portraits. The shading and the wrinkles look great. Your much better than I am. The quality of the photo looked great too. How did you get the shading to loon so realistic? How long did it take you to do this? You should upload deviations like this more often.

You may say that you're not used to graphite, but I can't really believe that, 'cause this is stunning, amazing, brilliant! Good job :D

really im not used to it i havent ever used for such a large drawing i think - i spent my time on this learning techniques whilst drawing - weirdly enough i think coming from colored pencils to graphite is easier then doing it the other way round :) and thank you

You might be right, for me its way easier to use graphite than colored pencils... No problem! :)
