  1. Just saw the piece on BBC news, so had to look you up. I used to think I was good with a pencil and a face to draw, but holy cow, you make me look like a positive amateur.

    You have a great talent - kudos to you.

  36. So finally someone appears who is actually doing soemthing that resembles real life. Discussing your cover picture and knowing it was such a skillfully produced pencil drawing literally drew us into the picture. Had we thought it just a photo then we wouldn't have paid as much attention to it, but the realisation it was done in pencil awed us. Amazing.

  37. This is incredible. The accuracy, the realism, absolutely astounding.

  38. You work is amazing ! Very realistic. Thank you for sharing your talent

  39. You have set the bar young man, I have been drawing seriously for about 3yrs and am 47 next week. I was beginning to think I wasn't half bad (pencil being my favoured medium at the moment) but now having seen a little of your work I realise I have to step it up.

    Congratulations on your awards in London

  41. What tool are you using on the hair at image nos. 7, 10, 15, 39, & 48? Looks like a fine eraser?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hi I am really hoping you can get back to me on this!
    First of all your work is amazing. Second of all, I notice in some of the steps you are filling the bangs with a black. Then I start seeing the highlights in the next picture. Are you using a white pencil? eraser? to achieve this look?

    Thank you!
