I thought I was in the photography section, this is unreal, one of the best photorealism drawings I've ever seen!

Thankyou Lea. To be honest it wasn't really that hard, it was just building up lots of layers of dark marks with a soft blending stump, putting in highlights with a pencil rubber and then blending them all together.

I remember it being quite time consuming though.

Yeah I like bristol board, I use for all my pencil portraits...when I get the time to do them!
