Thanks a lot. Usually for the deep dark I use a mechanical pencil (6b) and circulism technique :D

I have seen the second hobbit movie. Was a bit under my expectations, but a good film, after all (maybe too long). Thanks for yours kind words :D

This is very impressive to look at, such an amazing job! :0 I've just gotten into potraiture and I'd kill to know what rubbers and other tools you used to give the hair such great depth and precision :')

Thanks a lot. If you want draw realistic hair and fur I suggest you to look for the techniques 'negative drawing' and 'indenting'. Is hard to explain in few word, but I think you can find a lot of material online :D
Reply
:iconaestheticstomyears99:
Very welcome :). Negative drawing is familiar but the indenting is quite new, it makes so much more sense now that I get how crisp white flyaways and such are created. I really like learning new skills and I found some good tutorials/sites, thanks a lot :D (Big Grin)

Awesssommmmeee. Question, is the black background photoshopped in, painted, or just shaded like crazy? (This is done just with pencil right? No paint?)

Thanks, Vojtech, your works are good, but I think you have to change materials, if you want improve (specially the paper :D) ;-)

I've been thinking about buying a quality paper since the beginning, I just wasn't really convinced if my scribbles require that... To someone as experienced and skilled as you, this might be a bit stupid question, but - does it really make such a big difference?

francoclun Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
if you're talking about fundamentals (proportions, anatomy, outline) there is no difference, but when you go to shade and try to give depth, can make the difference :D
