The old man by AdiLABS The old man by AdiLABS
This is the piece I did like a week ago. I'm new at it and I wanted to do some different (like I've been doing young faces that are pretty smooth and comparatively easier to draw) so I planned on doing an old man (not the way it sounds :P ). Its an amazing photo and I loved drawing it.

TIME TAKEN : 3 days

TOOLS : 2H, HB, 2B, 4B, Charcoal Powder, Kneadable eraser, eraser, Tortillon and a lotta patience.

You know, it's pretty amazing how real it looks. Are you sure you're not related to Picasso or Da Vinci some how?

You seem to have a bit in common with me lol. I love doing portraits, but this exceeds anything i have done yet, i've never used charcoal powder before though. And i think you may like eyes as much as I do lol Congrats this is truly breath-taking :jawdrop:

Thank you so much. And this was the first and the last time I used charcoal. I used a brush to drive the powder around, I don't know how to use it so I never did again.

This is so awesome. One could think is was an old photograph.

I think elder people are much more interesting subjects than young ones, but then, I am weird and a beginner at visual arts.

me too. I started drawing like 4 months ago :D And you are right about elder people being more interesting. you can find so many emotions on their face and in their eyes. and i think you can draw old people more realisticaly cuz of all the wrinkles and the shadow and highlight it creats. thanks by the way

Oh, so you have drawn before, just not tried realism seriously. Still your progress is amazing. :wow: I'd wish I could say the same about me and digital drawing/painting.
