And it is an illusion indeed.Because it seems like a graphite-charcoal B/W portrait but its not what it seems.I used for this, Albrecht Durer Faber Castell watercolor pencils dry (the whole variety of the warm grays and cool grays plus black and white) and C.Kreul extrafine 0.8mm white for the highlights.It was meant to be a B/W portrait but not a typical one.I didn't expect the watercolor pencils to provide such a detailed work but i did sharpen them very well to make all the tiny lines happen.I am quite happy with the way it turned.:nod:
I was greatly inspired by Patric Shaw's amazing work [link]

awww!:love:
I loved this one my dear,lately i have come to a conclusion.The things i like the most are the things ppl around me pay almost no attention to.So i dont feel like an alien anymore,i choose to just feel blessed.
But every time i check someone paying attention to the things I like,then...i get to have a big smile on my face.:iconcuteplz:
