I have loved drawing since I was little kid. There was over 6 years, when I didn’t draw at all. Now I’m doing my comeback.
First of all, I never have drawn photorealistic drawings before. It was more like drawing cartoons. Last September 2015, I was at an art course. There I learned new techniques how to draw. Most interesting to me was drawing photorealistic pictures. I started with my own portrait.
Of course it was strange and hard to draw your own face. The result actually surprised me. I never thought I would learn to draw like that.
I usually use pencils between 9B-9H to drawings. Sometimes I use charcoal to most black areas. Blender is my most important tool. I can blend the layers for drawing and bring it alive. Depends of size of drawing, but it take usually over 8 hours to draw one enough good looking drawing. At the moment, I’m drawing Thranduil (from The Hobbit).
