Bahram photorealistic pencil portrait by Thubakabra Bahram photorealistic pencil portrait by Thubakabra
This was a commission drawn with graphite pencil tools. I used a small, blurry photo to drew this artwork; it was hard to draw, but I enjoyed to make it. 
Hope you like it! 

Oh my god, thankd for the DD! :wow:

This is just amazing! They say that a true master is an eternal student, but I'd still like to know how long did it take for you to reach this skill level? :)

Beautiful pencil work!  All he needs to come to life, is the breath of life, but it would take more then Harry Potter's wand to do that.  :iconclappingraccoonplz:

This is so good! How do you put so much detail from a small, blurry photo? I have trouble doing that. Do you make up some details?

Thanks! 
Well, I make up some parts (for example, skin texture is easy to make it up), or I'm looking for similar pictures, if I'm puzzled with some parts, like the curve of the eye.

Ok cool! You're very details with the wrinkles etc so i'm surprised you drew it from a blurry image. I'm starting to get into commissions and some people want me to draw portraits of them. Most of the time the photos aren't large and a little blurry. How much should I charge usually?

Well, first of all, ask them to send you a better picture. Work from blurry, little pictures is really hard work and sometimes it is impossible; you may not have the chance to catch the details for the faces to be recognizable. You have to make them ubderstand, that is really important. And if there is no way, you can ask for more money, and for more photos; this way you are able to make them recognizable. Usually I ask for $75 for a A4 drawing with one portrait, and if the reference is really blurry and I have to make up more details, I ask more $20 as extra charge.
But many times they have a bigger or better picture for the commission, so don't be afraid to ask for that. :)
