can you please teach me how to draw real people, i know you are probably very busy, and i know it takes practice, but i am a really good drawer, just not as good at realism, if you could just take a few minutes of your time to tell me how (in traditional drawing) how you shade and make the face proportional, i would appreciate it more than you could ever know! just any tips you can provide... i especially need help on hair

Heya. The realism in your work is really superb, I envy you :P. I have tremendous trouble drawing 'real' people so I appreciate these even more. Hair is stunning and the eye is so detailed...nice work!

I'm not sure how many hours it took! From start to finish was about a month, but I kept moving on to other commissions then coming back to this, I would guess at around 30-40 hours in total...more than I would usually spend on a drawing, but I was enjoying this one so the time flew in... Glad you like it! :)

This is really awesome but I have one question... how does this picture represent your personality? What it tells me is that you're half-hidden in the complexity of your veneer which makes you intriguing and mysterious... Am I right?
