:iconbouquetplz::iconsparklesplz: This is legendary! The perfect symmetrical detail on her scarf and jewelry is beyond me. Another thing I've notice is how you got the hairs in her eyebrow on the left side facing us. How did you get that middle tone against the black background so defined? Under 7 hours???? :faint: You painted the background with Indian Ink, right? What other areas did you use the Indian Ink and how did you work in her lashes on the left side facing us? Another thing... did you darken the scan in photoshop? Did you blur the focus any or kept it the same? And is this a jpeg. I should have noted you because I do portraits too with this type of startling contrast, but not with the details and not so focused and beautiful. I do apologize, but this is why I asked these questions in order to better my drawings. This is absolutely breathtaking.

wow, thanks for the compliments and ill do my best to answer ur questions.

*the India ink was one of the last things i applied. the entire negative space on the left is filled in with ink and around the lashes and brow on that side. Also, the darkest darks are a light wash of ink over the graphite...something new that i tried.

*no blur or filters used just a bit of level adjustment in ps to get rid of some reflective glare picked up by the flash. (i photograph my drawings)

this is one of my few drawings that i like better on paper than on screen...hope i got most of ur questions. having fun drawing!
