Right, so how long did it take you to do the stitching down the sweater??
Whiskery chin, age spots, tinted glasses, the wallpaper with the lighter spot and nail from a missing picture, EAR HAIR tufts... I have mentioned I like your details, right?
I do have a bit of a query about the hands though... Despite the ages spots and blue veins, the hands seem really young. Took me a bit to figure out why. I think it might be because the fingers are so slender: no swollen knuckles.
Other than that absolutely minor detail, this is a lovely picture. And a very nice selection of books, by the by.
I don't know. All pic took something about 20 hours.
Yes. I like details. In fact - all those things arem't details for me I had no time for really detailed work.
Just because I always have a problem with hands. And the old ones I drew the first time I spent so much time working on them that I had no patience for drawing longer. Except of fact that if I can't draw something during few hours - nothing is changing during the next few.
And the selection was easy. I took first few books from my shelf.
