Hi, really like your pencil realistic portrait, this is my style of art.
I'm a new join too, (sadly at the wrong age), but better late than never.
A friend of mine recommended the site and I've really enjoyed the positive vibe since joining. The DA global community is quite a digital revelation for a relic like me, but it is also having a major impact upon my art. Sharing views and kind encouragement from other artists has been amazing and I hope to help others artists in a similar fashion.
So welcome to DA and hope you have a great day, cheers
