Beautifully done - very different from much of the digital art that I have seen.

Thank you! My intent when I work in the digital realm is to purposefully make it look like traditional methods. After all, that is really where I come from. I merely use digital tools just like I use non-digital tools to achieve a particular look. For me, using digital tools doesn't change my style or character of the art I want to produce.

An excellent piece that achieves exactly what you set out to do as regards the traditional look.
I think you'll find quite a few digital usrs who fully subscribe to yor description using digital tools like conventional brushes or pencils .
that's how I use Photoshop on occasions - no different to painting on canvas or paper with the real thing .
Welcome to the forum.

I though it was a pencil sketch. It amazes me how you've used digital tools to achieve this look. Well done!

It sure would have fooled me if not for the "Digital" in the description. A testament to your obvious skill I think. Marvelous work and welcome aboard :)

Thanks! That's good to know because that is precisely what I want it to look like - traditional pencils.
