Mike, what dimensions are you at here? What brand pencils are you using? What's the capital of New Zealand? ;)

You've listed yourself as a student; I simply must ask how your professors react to these Photorealistic drawings. Do you experience any animosity from the "Draw from Life Academics," as I call them? I've never had to push a drawing this far, myself—my subjects are usually very young and my drawings rather small, but this is where I see myself headed. Thing is, there is not a lot of support to be had from those who see art in black and white (no pun intended) with a clear set of rules, and these are the people I often find myself surrounded by.

I sincerely hope you don't mind all this dialogue. For now, you've made the fatal mistake of drawing too well; I have to watch you. There's no escape ...MWUHAHAHAHAH!

Hello Mr Anderson.

The drawing is A4 in size, the pencils that I used are Faber Castell and I did think that the capital of New Zealand was Auckland, until I googled it and discovered that it is Wellington.

I haven't really had a reaction from my tutors yet, because I have't submitted any photo-realistic work to be assessed. I get the impression that some of them are not be overly enthusiastic about realism in general, so I'm not really sure what to expect.

I don't mind the dialogue at all,  thankyou very much for taking the time to comment and thanks for the watch.

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!
