I was developing poses for one of my projects and when I hit this one it kind of just became a full drawing. Took about 6 maybe 7 hours... not sure... kind of lost myself in it.

Nice work. Only comments I'd make are regarding contrast. As a previous poster said you could use a white pen/pencil but you could also twist a bit of putty rubber into a point and use that to make some nice sharp highlights. Don't be afraid to add more black to the deeper shadows either, you could use a pen or a charcoal pencil.

Thanks for the advice... a lot of people give it, but what you think is weak contrast is actually bad lighting and a bad camera. the contrast on the original piece is much deeper and gives the work more pop. Unfortunately saving for a Cintiq and paying for collage classes has left me strapped for cash and i can't afford a better camera. I'm actually working with a friend of a friend to take much more quality pictures seeing as hes a photography hobbyist the uploads should be of a lot higher quality.

hi! have ever tried to highlight with just a little white pencil? it's a very old technique I have a new b&w portrait I did today, check it out and if you have time hit with some insight
BTW this drawing is great, very well thought out and detailed, has some weight to it if you know what I mean

I understand exactly what you mean. A lot of my drawings have been "good" but they lacked the emotion to back it. With this one that's what I decided to focus on and I was very satisfied with it and I'm glad you were too. I will check out your portrait and I might as well watch you too lol. I use white conte when i want something to have a very white highlight rather than a pencil, i find it much more malleable. otherwise though i just use a kneaded eraser to pull out some of the value.
