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!

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 !

You used a single HB for this? I'm impressed. I never would've thought it possible.

Thanks bro.. yep I've pretty much learned that if you are broke and only got one type of pencil.. you learn to make it create what shades you need with varying textures or just by altering your pressure as you draw or shade.. then I got a bigger paycheck and learned.. what a faster way it is to use multiple pencils sometimes.. LOL

this is so good. so many pencil drawings end up waaaay overworked to the point of being anal but this one works just right.
2 questions:
how big is this drawing?
and who is this 'hippest girl'?

good work mate

:iconshadowgrail:
Shadowgrail Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2004  Professional Traditional Artist
original size I drew her in was 10 by 15 inches..

The Hippest girl ? She's a combination of wet dreams and super models.. I used a photo of Jessica Alba but altered eyes.. hair ,nose structure..cheek bones.. =)

:iconandrewtunney:
AndrewTunney Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2004  Professional General Artist
oh yeah!
actually i think i have that photo...wait...YES!
awww, shes a hotty.
and is it just me or did she suddenly become latino for 'honey'? ive seen her in stuff and never realised before, i always just figured she was tanned!

but then, i am a little slow
