Peace and Kissy Faces by Cerzus69 Peace and Kissy Faces by Cerzus69
This is a drawing of Janae (of whom I've also made a solo portrait) and the children she was babysitting.

I am not sure but I think this drawing has taken me more time than any other before, so at least 60 hours. But it is spread over 6 or 7 months and I didn't keep track so I really have no idea how long exactly it took.

It was a lot of fun to render all the mid-tone values. There are so many more different shades of gray than you'd think!

i'm not sure... maybe because it's such a small detail, but everyone (or at least i think everyone:P) knows what a glove looks and feels like, so it really brings the piece to life.

Ok, now i`m truly amazed! If i hadn`t seen a few of Paul Cadden`s drawings before i saw this magnificent work of art, i`d probably never believed it was a drawing!! Totally love this!!

The only thing i find sad is that i`ll never reach neither your nor Cadden`s artistic level, however i`m equally amazed by yours and his work. I know, everyone gets better with practice, but i know my limits, hehe:) But that`s the beauty with inspiration, you set new and higher goals. Instead i find myself lucky that i at least can enjoy the work of other more skillfull artists like yourself:) That said, i hope i`ll see more of your work soon!

Why would you say that? I have seen people here grow a LOT in just a few years! If you really want to, you will get better. Watch/read a couple tutorials, use the tips and make another drawing. You will see results. Don't set limits for yourself, set new goals!

To give a quick and easy answer, i don`t have the patience that is required to reach your level;) However, i know i can improve my own drawings greatly but since i don`t have enough time/patience, i can only improve that much. Thanks for the motivational speech, apreciate it:)
