French actor Yves Montand [imdb: [link] ] :love:

Wow! :wow:
This is so realistic :) And I can imagine that it must have taken a long time if only because of all the little details - like the shading on his forehead, and the creases around his eyes - but they really add to the realism. Great artwork! ^_^

It did indeed take a very long time to finish. But I am generally not the fastest drawer :D. Thank you so much for your kind words, I'm very happy you like it. :heart: :thanks:

Thank you very much! :) He is not very well known, so no problem if you don't know him. ;)

And you are very welcome, of course! Actually I usually don't just click the "watch"-button without any comment or so, but I didn't want to forget about your gallery and to come back later and properly "savour" it. :)

Wow, du bist richtig gut geworden. Ich finde, dass das hier dein bestes Portrait ist. Die Schattierungen und der Ausdruck seiner Persönlichkeit sind dir wirklich gut gelungen!!!!

Xia, du erstaunst mich immer wieder. *Kopfschüttel*
Immer wenn ich denke, dass es cooler gar nicht mehr werden kann haust du voll rein.
Ich kann mich den anderen nur anschließen, das Bild ist super-genial. Habs auch zuerst für ein Foto gehalten...
Da läßt man dich mal ein Jahr von der Leine... ;)

Du hast echt 5 Monate dran gebaut? *staun* Dafür konnte ich bisher die Geduld nie aufbringen... Wahrscheinlich bist du deshalb auch arschgut und ich nur arsch. *lach*
Bin auf die anderen Portraits auch gespannt.

Wow, vielen vielen Dank für dein Lob, das freut mich unheimlich, daß dir das Bild gefällt! :hug:
Die 5 Monate horchen sich nur so lang an, ich mach immer lange "Pausen" dazwischen ;)...

Hm.. das comment vorher is scheinbar nicht durchgegangen.. grr..

Also noch einmal vielen Dank!! Ich fühl mich unheimlich geehrt, daß meine Bilderlein für dich Inspiration sind... :thanks:

Ich muß mich sowieso bei dir entschuldigen, daß ich deine neuen Bilder noch nicht kommentiert hab. Ich hatte leider in der letzten Zeit kaum Zeit und Muße (in meiner Watchlist stapeln sich über 600 Bilder :omg: ).. Ich hoffe, das ändert sich demnächst einmal, dann nehm ich mir auch Zeit für deine neue Galerie. :)

nice work, i just had a look at your gallery and i think you should consider this one of, if not, the best drawing you have done. well done for hitting a different level and standard of work, you just have to keep it up now :)

Thank you very much for your kind comment! I too consider this my "best" drawing so far - even though I'm still on the very beginning of the learning process, of course. I'm very happy with how this turned out. :)

Da hätte ich ja auch auf deutsch schreiben können...

Man, ich sollte mir in Zukunft die anderen Kommentare auch durchlesen;)

Schönes bild! Wenn ich da an meine schweren Geburten in Kunst denke... Naja, bis zum Abi muss es laufen:)

Fröhliche Weihnachten!

XiaoGui Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2006
Hehe... :D

Vielen Dank noch einmal! :heart:

Das mit dem Zeichnen ist eigentlich nur eine Frage des genauen Hinschauens und natürlich Übung. Aber recht viel mehr steckt eigentlich eh nicht dahinter, denke ich. ;)

Und ich wünsch dir ebenfalls gesegnete Weihnachten! :)
