I would swear this was an old photo. The attention to details and the way you capture texture is amazing.

You really are a master at capturing texture in your drawings, as well as the quiet majestic quality of this elephant. I admire the dedication to providing every detail, and the commitment of time in order to do this. All of your drawings are absolutely superb examples of skill mastery. Bravo!

There are not enough words in any language to discribe how "AMAZING" and "INCREDIBLE" your work is. Thank you for giving me so much inspiration when I look at your beautiful artwork. I can't wait for the day when I'm able to reach the skill level you're at with graphite. And who knows, maybe one day I'll become a graphite MASTER just like you. Keep the masterpieces coming.
