A pen is certainly lethal in your hand. lol This is marvelous! Your cross hatching is superb, and your talent shines here. I can see why you got a DD for this! The depth of her eyes, the soft shadows of her cheeks, her amazing lips, are all testament to your amazing ability. I am glad I found you among the myriad of artists here on DA :)

Thank you. :) I have to tell that your comment made me smile. This is probably the only artwork I've been working on that made my hands hurt. And probably one of not so many artworks I'm satisfied with. Thanks you very much. :)

This looks as if time, care and devotion was spent. I have to say, this is the, by far, best piece you have in your collection posted. In fact, this is one if the best pieces I've seen roaming this site.

Her eyes have depth and emotion; the smile is infectious. The subtlety of her cheeks and the soft shading...

Now repeat it on each piece from now on. Take your time and show your love of art and beauty.

Bravo. This is simply a wonderful piece of work.

Oh, I do not know what to say anymore...

I wish I could draw like this every time, but when I was drawing A.F. I was in some kind of trance. I do not even remember the drawing process...

Well, there is only one thing I can say now...

Thank you, thank you very much. :)

I hope you know I was not slamming you. This is truly a great piece.

It shows (me at least) there is so much more you can do.

Keep at it. Always strive for the unabtainable. Always.

There 2 aspects to art:
1) natural talent and inclination
2) technical ability

Just about anyone can be "taught" to draw technically correct. But to bring those scratches of ink, graphite, paint, etc to life; to make it breath and shine; that's where instead talent shines.

You can be a good artist with raw talent.

You can be a good artist with good technical ability.

But you need both to be a great artist.

The technical aspect happens through a good school and/or time. Lots of time, and lots of drawing.

I couldn't agree more.

Here, on DA you can find a lot of people with technical skills, but they are not artists.

Me, I have never been taught how to draw... But I could not call myself an artist. I just love to draw things... And drawing 'things' make me feel fulfilled.

There is also a funny story behind it. When I was 2 years old I did not enjoy it. I had a vision defect and was not aware of this. Fortunately, my parents noticed that something was wrong. It turned out that I needed glasses. After that I started to enjoy drawing and I draw a lot to this day...
