Practice with pencil and white charcoal

Thank you so much for the front page!


Not sure if its the eyes or the nose. But now we have the impression the nose is facing the wrong way. Meaning we see the right side of the nose, while instinct tell me I should see the left side of the nose. To put it short the perspective is wrong. Except if he has a crooked nose :)
Otherwise an overall expressive work with lovely details.

I was telling myself the same thing when I finished it! I was thinking that it was probably how I drew the nose and its shadow, I'll have to fix that up later xD Looking at the original photo I can see what part I messed up, thanks so much for the review!

Amazing piece, but just so you know that is not the source of the original photo. Someone stole it and placed it on DeviantArt...

Thank you! :)

I love the paint, it`s really awsome . . .

KarylAnne responds:

Thanks! Glad you like it! :)

fantastic and amazing look out on the detail... with the veins and wrinkles of the skin.. also the hold you gotten to mold the beard is impressive as well

KarylAnne responds:

Thank you! I really wanted to work on drawing wrinkles and this was definitely a good practice. Very glad you like it!
