This is the face of sorrow.
How common nowadays...
ref from [link]
I used:
Mechanical pencil 0.5 lead HB for the skin texture details.
Derwent charcoal pencils (black & white) to build the forms.
Black soft pastel for massive shading.
White soft pastel for the highlights.

Still a pretty face, wrinkles, are an aspect of beauty that intrigue many artists, kind of like velvet, macro photography, and all the other forms of details, i notice you are truly placed in portraiture, and that is really cool though what i would like to see from you is full anatomy portrait, though i will just watch and see where you take your skills.

I miss my run on sentences not editing this one, last two weeks were pretty heavy though i did sculpt two 1.25 inch long arms and realized they were each .15 inches excessive so now I start over, for weeks ago I made progress on a painting started in 06.

I have started a nude that in fact drives me crazy over here,too many colors exploding in every inch of it,when you get to see it you ll see my point.Actually i would like to paint a pic of this vid, [link] not sure how i can make it work still,but then again if i want this badly i ll find a way,yes? ;)
Hmmm any ideas would be highly appreciated!:cuddle:

I am sry about the sculpt my dear.Doing traditional art (in any form) can give you shits like this,theres no UNDO button for us.Either we go perfect or we fuck up and we have to start all over again.If its any consolation to you i have destroyed many drawing that i considered as "not perfect" .:roll:

same on the destruction, Bon Fuegos Galore

I am attempting to not through 100+ hour things away, with sculpting it is not a control z aspect or command z should ye be a Macci. I have seen a painting of this clip assuming it is the correct python enhanced dance you linked me to, if I consider who it is I shall share,

you may want to look into an artist named Eric White [link] and one named Glenn Barr [link] , [link] I am off to link them up

ok so linked Eric white has been busy so i will have to look into him moreso, Glenn as well though he kind of has vamped out his table dancers, no idea why. on erics page he has a car sitting picture that sort of lays out a plan of action.

more later
