Wonderful! I'm faving this! :clap: I'd give anything to draw this well. :wow:

Thanks - I don't think it's that difficult, I think anyone can. If something's wrong, you just rub it out and try again - it's often hard to spot what's wrong, but that's just practice. A drawing a day (which I've been slacking on recently) will sort out the practice.

You're very welcome and thanks for the encourgement! :salute:

I can't stop watching it! :clap:

Thanks - I kind of wanted it so that it looked real from a distance, but that you could still see the strokes close up.

I am in love with the piece, it is breath taking. Is it really this flushed out in person or just from the photo?
shalpin's avatar
Thankyou for the kind words. You know any devArtist is going to say "it looks better in real life" :) I think real life looks pretty much like the photo, but it was a horrible photo to start with and there's a lot of "jpeggyness" on the full view.

Thankyou. I wanted the background a little 'more perfect', but I was happy the way that the figure turned out.
