Omg. You are going to have to redraw this very nice picture, on paper with NO LINES on it:)
Very nicely done!

8 hours O.o, well you are really mastering your craft, i also really like that you give details like the type of paper you use, pencils and other materials so newbies like me can begin to understand how you achieve this level of drawing epicness, outstanding work :)

oh yeah, all the cross hatching! Yeah, I like other styles beside the realism I strive for? Something about a good raw edgy sketch style totally inspires me!! :D:D

Thank you! :D Yes well it started with my brother aksing me to make a drawing of Brad Pitt in his notebook.
It was just a sketch and the crosshatching was a much quicker way to shade. I didn't expect it to be so liked,
but I actually like this style myself too because this way you can still see that they're drawings when you
look up close.

LilaeaBluecoat Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2012
I think people like it so much because it's an approach to hatching that you don't see a lot; it's quite coarse and heavy instead of the more often seen light, feather-y, close-together approach you usually see around. It's certainly working well with you! :D

can i ask you something
and pls don'T understand it wrong

but why this lined notebook paper instead of clear white ? :confused:

Cerzus69 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's okay. :) It's because my brother asked me to make a drawing in his notebook just for fun and not too serious.
As it turned out it was much better than expected so I made one of Johnny Depp as well and then this one.
I still have to make one of Jim Carrey, but after that I will draw on clean paper again. :) Thanks for asking!

Thanks! :) That's why I like it. From far away you can't tell so much but up close you can see the lines so you can still see that it's a drawing and not a photo, because that's what many people say about my regular drawings.
