Hi everybody :)

Finally ! This is completed :) I have to say that I'm proud of myself about this portrait. I've enjoyed every part of the drawing process :) Your support and useful critics helped me a lot to motivate me ! Thank you all :)

It was a kind of personnal challenge to make a drawing with only one pencil. I enjoyed it but I will use some other pencils on my next project. The drawing took me about 60 hours to finish it. I'm ready for the next challenge !

Paper used : 11x14 Canson Bristol Smooth

Material used : Mainly 4B 0.5mm mechanical pencil and HB 0.3mm for some parts of the shirt

Thank you very much for watching :)

Very nice! I would imagine using only one pencil was quite a challenge!

great piece!! Looking at some of your other pieces on here it's really neat to see how much you've improved as an artist. (hope that's taken as a compliment not as a negative thing.)

In first view i though that was a picture, yeah I were thinking until read the others comments.

Wow, you are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
Oh my gosh, that is perfect.
A long time ago people drew well, but to be honest almost did not seem real, I think that what made them (pictures) famous are their stories but the years change... and we can find a lot of people talented like you!!

I am doing a art work, my teacher told me to chose any artist, hehehe and I though to chose you XD but may to be famous D: never mind, Will do it!!

OMG one of the best drawings in Deviantart!!!
