Another commissioned piece

This is another commisioned piece I made. I have made lots of commissioned jobs and sometimes I forget to get progress shots. I was opportuned to have this one. haha.

This was done using graphite pencils and charcoal pencils.

I Shoved the graphite pencil into fine dust, added a bit of machine oil to it for the graphite to assume a paste form, then the application was done using a dry brush hence the name "dry brush" Why I use this method is because it is someway close to making a dry brush painting. Infact I call it the graphite dry brush painting. That's what gives me the smooth skin texture.

You all should try out that method. It works like magic.

I have been receiving questions like: When are we seeing your own self portrait. Well, The time is very near for work has started already.

If you are ready say yeh!😅😅😅

Here are the progress shots of this piece

Nice job buddy! Thanks for the dry brush explanation too; I always wondered how you got the skin looking so smooth.

And congratulations on the Curie vote too!

Howdy from Texas sir unyimeetuk! That drawing is so realistic that it looks like a photo at first glance! It is so good and real looking. Why do you call yourself "your Lazy Artist?"

Fabulous! Your drawings are always so realistic. It's amazing how you can create something like this. You have a huge talent and I hope you do utilize it to its full potential ;)

Congratulations on another commission! As usually, I am convinced that the owner has been pleasantly surprised :)

Have a great weekend!
