I think its interesting that most your work that I've seen is very stylized but this is very detailed, very nicely rendered. You sir, are versatile and your work is great! I expected no less from a Soriano

Hey, I've been looking through your gallery and I really love all your pencil work. And this one is by far my favorite one of yours. I love the time you took to put in all the details. Good stuff, man! Keep it up!
presentstranger's avatar
Wow! The detail is amazing (the face too) How can you go on for 5 hours straight???
When I draw i have to start and stop... do that until the picture is finally done.... usually if I draw straight, I don't know... my brain makes me think that I have to be done and then I rush and fuck up the picture for some strange invisible deadline...
Anyway... I love you gallery.. I'm jealous... and I love when other artists make me jealous, makes me wanna draw, try harder, different stuff and shit.. so thanks for that!!!

Heh ! well you're welcome .. and thank you ? =P
Seriously thanks man.. I have always had alot of stamina for drawing especially if it's something I'm totally into.. also it was good training for when I actually got paying gigs that required a deadline.. it was easier to guage how long it would take for me to do and see if I can meet that deadline.. keep on keepin' on I say !

:thank:
