You've done a nice job on portraying Erwin Rommel- definitely capturing the look of an intelligent and determined military leader.

Great portraiture skills, man. The shading for the uniform is masterful, as are the textures for the military cap.

I do find the area above the lip distractingly odd, though. It looks like it's shaded a little too dark in comparison with the rest of the skin tone (please forgive me if this was how it appeared in the reference, if you used one.)

That's all I'm going to say on the critique side, though. Your way of drawing portraits is immense, I've seen your other works and it seems you possess some real talent.
Because I'm still a newb at art, I have to ask: what grades of pencil did you use? I'm looking to improve in the future. :D

Keep it up!

4.5 / 5

Well i used an old photo as reference so it might been some odd weather damage (if you understand) on the picture and i use from 2B to 8B pencil and charcoal for intense blacks and something to smudge graphite ( you can even use a q-tip or piece of cloth)


Good job! SlothSWAG.
Wery well made, there is few minor mistakes in the peaked caps shape, but as i said very little ones.
Rommel was a true military leader, and a damn good one.
