Oh wow, this is gorgeous. 6B is so hard to work with as well (spend half the time resharpening the damn things), which only makes it even more impressive.

If you don't mind, could I ask what size this is / how long it took you to do?

Thanks so much, and thanks for faving! I actually find 6B the easiest to work with because I don't have to push too hard to get the dark tones, so I'm really just lazy ^^;? What do you use?
This is on A4, and probably took me 5 hours in total, though I did it over a week or two when I had the time :) And the background took shockingly long!

Your work is really amazing. I try to use dark levels like that, but I tend to smudge my work unless I keep using a lacquer on it so I use probably 4B-F generally. I'm trying to get into the darker tones though- they get such nice effects. And that's really quick for that level of detail in that size. Your work just keeps getting more impressive- even people I talk to agree with me on it. :) (Smile)  I'm trying to get semi-realistic works under the six hour mark, and you've got such realistic work in such a short time.

I bet the background would have taken a long long long time. How you managed to keep it all looking so clean is beyond me, but I guess that's a skill you would have worked to develop.

Oh well thank you :lol: I'm so glad you think I'm improving because sometimes I feel like I'm going backwards, I honestly can't tell anymore, so thanks so much for the encouragement :)
The background DID take a really long time! Now that you bring it up it probably took me an hour more than I said, just because of the background... and the hair, I'm horrible with hair. By the quarter mark I was really hating myself for even trying to colour in a background, but in retrospect I'm glad I did. And the texture of the paper added a bit of something to it that I wish I could take credit for xD
I don't know what you're talking about with "semi-realistic", your drawings are pretty damn realistic already. How long does it take you to do them at the moment? Love the RDJ one!
I use 4B sometimes as well because I keep running out of 6B (so much sharpening!), I find that it can be just as good :) All I do to stop smudging is place a sheet of paper over the bit of the drawing I'd normally rest my hand on. Obvious suggestion but it works! But I also studied architecture at uni, where even the smallest smudge is noticeable when you're drawing the thin lines of a floor plan. You end up being really paranoid about smudging so I'm sure some of that must have rubbed off (no pun intended!) on me :D
And I should tell you that I do adjust levels in Photoshop before I submit; nothing drastic, but as I'm sure you know, even the darkest pencil turns out a washed out grey when you bring it to the computer. So I adjust the tones until I get it looking the way it looks on the actual paper.
