Hmm, I've never thought of doing realism on watercolor paper!! I think I'll try it!! This is absolutely amazing though-so SO realistic!! The shading is fantastic and the details in the hair and clothes are superb
To be frank the first thing which caught my eye was the shadows (between him and the background). I really admire the subtlety in the shades of grey... I never can get that many tones >: This is brilliant!
thanks so much my dearwell, to get many tones of grey really take me ages..i have to draw carefully and precisely..I also use variety of pencils from about 4H, 3H, 2H H HB B 2B to get the right shadesi also use mechanical pencils 0,5 mm HB and 2B to make the tiny details and pencil eraser, very helpful
