Tribute to my father - Final by Shouclak Tribute to my father - Final by Shouclak
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 :)

I know what you're thinking... and i am not kidding you. I am disinclined to feature artists who limit themselves to mimic a reference photo without adding a bit of themselves in the process, for the results are often devoid of spirit, however impressive the technical prowess involved. Well there's spirit here, and technical prowess indeed. I'm sure you'll go running to check out his wips, as i did in amazement... Tribute to my father - Final by *Shouclak, one of the most impressive pencil artists around. ( Suggested by csdavis and Featured by stigmatattoo )

OH MY GOD!

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!!!

you CAN'T make a drawing like this... especially with just one pencil, in only 60 hours... that's AMAZING, HOW DID YOU DO THAT?? you're not thinking about making some tutorials, are you?.... that's BY FAR the BEST pencil portrait i've EVER seen, including the ones of all of those incredible dA artists.... that's AMAZING ...
