This drawing reminds me of Da Vinci's "St Jerome" just because the structure of the drawings are both so beautiful.

Your style almost reminds me of ancient sketches, like what Galileo had in his journal. Or at least I think it was Galileo... either way, you really have an amazing talent for realism.

This is exquisite work, truly. So much comes through every piece you create - it's really wonderful! I love how you draw very simply, and don't overuse your values thereby muddying up the work. Really, really great. Top drawer, man. Top shelf, even.

Please, please please PLEASE say that you draw from life and not photos? Don't hurt me and say that you draw from photos... o_O

(holy crap this look like my band teacher.) Your work is so realistic. Your shapes and shading is perfect. The texture around his eyes really captures my attention.

Incredible detail. Just a few questions. Do you draw from photos? What media do you use, and do you ever use anything to smudge the shades?

its kind of funny really i look at this picture and i see how wonderful it is yet it doesnt have many views or comments. Then i see some stupid drawing of Link or Naruto on the front page of dA with stuff like this in the shadow. Sad really.

Nice gallery by the way :)
