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

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)
