Don't apologize - I hardly get any comments!

Thanks so much, and I hope to have more of these soon. It was a lot of fun.

Dude! Absolutely gorgeous! I love how intense and attractive her eyes are. They really draw you in and make you want to hear her thoughts. As always, great work on the hair, and . . . well, everything else is amazing, too. You, sir, do amazing work, per the norm.

Thanks Man! The girl I referenced had the most stunning blue eyes, and I'm glad it came across in some way.

Anthony, you've got to do more of these. they are amazing.

How big is this sketch by the way?

Anthony VanArsdale said...

Thank Mark! and I sure plan on it. Using the cloth to smear the charcoal powder changed my opinion of this medium.

I'm surprised after checking the measurements again that this one is 8 1/2" by 11"

I thought for some reason it was bigger than that, but the size worked well for putting in the details for the face.
