Your whole gallery is so good, it was hard to decide which one to comment on... but I think you did a particularly superb job of capturing the texture & value shifts of his skin in this one. Beautiful work.

Thanks so much!! This is a COPY/PASTE from my online TIP GUIDE (link at bottom) It explains how I use a nail or needle to first scratch the paper, to make little white hairs, etc :D:D

BE SURE TO READ MY GUIDE HERE: [link]

NEGATIVE SPACE: One great trick I learned, was to use a small nail, duct tapped to an old pencil, as a stylus for scratching out whiskers, white hairs, highlights, etc. IMPORTANT: PRACTICE this before you ruin a drawing. Get an old piece of drawing paper, and practice the procedure. What I do, BEFORE (important) I put any graphite on the area, is hold the paper sideways in the light, so I can see where I am scratching, and I make the needed lines, hairs or whiskers in the paper. THEN, I rub a pencil SIDEWAYS over the scratch mark, to Expose the white lines. I can then draw between them, or what ever, but the effect is amazing to me! It’s a PERFECT tool for creating white whiskers, white hair (against dark back ground), etc. You will find many uses for this! The MAIN concept of “Negative Drawing” is that you create what you are trying to draw, NOT by drawing it, but by drawing first what surrounds the object. Hair is a perfect example (hair type depending). Hair should NOT be many pencils lines, but the shadows BETWEEN the hairs, which by default, will create the ILLUSION of hair. The same with teeth. I draw the dark areas AROUND the teeth, which as a result, forms the shape of teeth.

i think you don't remember me, it took me a bit longer to reply. i asked you for the technik to draw white hair. first! thank you very much for you detailed explaining. that sounds like a very effective working and the result proofs it. you artworks are excellent!=")
i'm still trying to find my personal style. at the moment i'm fixed in the expressive way of painting. but i want to learn to draw in the exactly way, too:) so i'll try it.
some human are very gifted... i read a bit on your page and you are such a man.
at the moment i'm drawing a bit for my studyfinish. thats why i'm just timeless. i willbe happy to see more of your art in future:)...and i wish you a veryvery nice evening,

I did not start out to develop my own style, it was just the result of focusing on just the facial areas of a portrait, instead of wasting time with clothes, etc. :D
Thanks for you kind words and Keep the Passion!
Have a gr8 day!!

This is amazing! Its strange to think how small it is, but I completely agree about saving time and drawing small. What did you use to do the white hairs on his eyebrows?

but basically, I scratch the paper with a nail or something, and then when you draw over the scratch, it leave a negative line :D:D

I never thought to use scratches on the paper to your advantage. Genius!

Wow, I read your tip guide and its amazing to think that you never had any art lessons. But whats even more amazing is the fact that it took you so long to find out that you were good! Ive definetly learnt a lot from those tips. Thanks! :clap:

Wow, the lines in his face! You did an amazing job capturing his age. Alot of your other portraits are of younger people with smooth faces, so getting all the creases and shadows on this is a wonderful treat.

Macy is a personal fave of mine. He often plays an everyman sort of character who gets himself in over his head. His face could be that of a meek Disney actor, but if you look deeper, as you did in your drawing you can see the complexitiy and darkness in his features. Very nicely done!
