Hi Patrick. Thanx for your words and yes, I do use only pencils. I like Pastels texture, smoothness and ability to mix up and blend colors together is just amasing. I have some "carrés" but I use them only for great size projects or wide surface application.
I love Hypper-realism but I'm sure I have a lot to learn (especially from mistakes
). And I also like challenges, that requires patience and motivation, like "Honfleur" recently.
I'm not so disappointed with "Tanya's" now but, I guess the contrast has to be increased for the face.
Anyway, from my point of view, I think you should post your WIP here, so that anyone can objectively give coment and advices. One can improve a lot, this way. So good luck to you and I'm waiting to see your progression.
