  2. These drawings are amazing. Im glad I found u through Drawing Mag. I know u went over some of them, but can briefly expound on your techniques? How much time does it take to do say, Trinity.

    Normally I dont go for 'photorealistic' style work, but to my mind these drawings go way, way beyond the simple category of photorealist. They are true portraits. Very exciting.

  3. Thank you!
    If you don't count preparing the canvas and the endless task of fixating the work, it took me about 30 hours.

  4. How DO you fix your work? I love the idea of 'painting' with charcoal on canvas!

  5. I use Lascaux Fixative 2070, up to or even more than 10 layers of it.
