I was asked to do this commission by someone to give as a gift. This one was a different from the other drawings that i have done. There were all kinds of textures and lighting effects that made it an interesting drawing to work on. It was an unexpected commission because the deadline time was real short, so it got really stressful. But i have to say that its one of my most realistic portraits that i have done. The family was real happy with the drawing and i was told that the person that received it said it was the best gift they had ever received, which made me happy to hear.

    The drawing is really impressive, seems a photography! I am new in this and am trying to learn several techniques to perfect my drawings, although so far I made one, a German Shepherd dog. The effects of realism of the hair custan a little to me to obtain them because I am argentinian and it turns out complicated to understand the explanations to me that estan in English although I help enough some images. I like, if it is possible, that they did a video in detail showing as the hair of the animals can be drawn so that any person can do it. Thank you very much.

    Getting the the right lighting depends on what you are drawing. The shape of it and the direction where light hits it, gives the drawing depth. The same object being hit from different light sources will look different. The best advice i can give you is for you to study a photograph and see how light hits it. The bright areas will be left blank on paper or will be lightly covered in pencil. The shadows will be covered in dark pencil. To get smooth smooth transitions between lights and dark i recommend for you to use a Shami towel, the ones that are used to dry cars after washing them. Well if you have any other questions just contact me.
