my photo-realistic pencil drawing of film director John Huston

my photo-realistic pencil drawing of film director John Huston
a couple of years ago I took a pencil portrait drawing course...this drawing was the final exercise of the ten week course...sadly I have found that I have just enough patience for photography, not the 30 hours that this drawing took

Bernhard Hofbeck, Graphite, Alexandre Chryssikos, Demetrius Chryssikos have particularly liked this photo

It is too bad, because you have a good feel for portraiture. I really couln't tell it was made from a photograph, and I can usually tell.

Thanks for your comments. This past winter I picked up my pencil and tried portrait sketches of other famous folk. Some came out well. About 90 minutes of concentrated effort.
