People should be proud of their wrinkles as they get old. Wrinkles are earned. 

This work is top class, and I've stared at it for some time. :)

I'm afraid I'm not able to understand the question. Did you ask why I'm drawing hyperrealism?

I understand the question. This is the most talented and impressive thing I've ever seen, it's just that some people don't think this is art - like why bother creating what's already there? But I say if you're this great, keep at it! This makes an unique and brilliant hobby! :)

Awesome realistic drawing. I feel that drawing older people shows the history of that individual and it can be extremely beautiful.

I agree with you, old man and woman are much more intresting than a pretty face. I mean, I like pretty faces, off course, but from the drawing point of view, old faces are more challenging and intresting. Thanks for the kind words :D

If i use charcoal i have seen some greats lay a base of charcoal then eraser to lift the charcoal to give the impression of hair...but i cant lift it, can you use chalk on charcoal or what methods are there to give those crisp higlights?? Loosing the plot

francoclun Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The higlight in my case is the white of the paper. I think there is no better way, but I don't use charcoal so I don't know how can I help you, sorry
