I will be studying this on ZOOOOOm for a long time to understand your 'technique'.

The brushstrokes are so intriguing.

It is almost Impressionistic in feel.

Thanx so much for sharing this with us, it truly pleaseth our eye,

Dhonnobad, Rajashree!

Hi Ute (friesin) - thanks! I guess subtler tonal shifts impart greater dimensionality to drawings/paintings than high contrast shifts.

Hello Derek, so kind of you to notice the mix of lines and brushiness :)

Thank you so much Susan.

hi Yvie (levanty) - you're too kind, and I'm humbled. I guess some informed practice can help one improve eventually, so that's what I've been doing.

Hey Pawn, thank you!

And to you as well, Ms Nan :) Hope you had a lovely V'day.

Oh Greg, you're too generous :) Your comment would inspire me to work harder.

Awesome work Prosenjit :clap: ..... I admire your talent. I have seen your contributions regularly, in the WDT, in The Drawing and Sketching Forum, and they too are awesome ....... and especially so as you seem to work so quickly.

Chammi, you've always been so kind :) Thank you!

Don, I'm honored that you'd say so... I consider you one among those who have made the most significant contribution to WC with your tutorials on portraiture and figure. Thanks a lot!

Aww Anne, I don't know what to say :) Thank you so much. Re: quick drawing, I don't know what to do with the extra time, the drawings finish themselves on their own, and I'm not psychologically geared to do detailed hyper-realistic renderings :(
