Very soft drawing and look like a real photo. Your hand is very flexible. How have u managed to hide the lines and expose only smooth shadows?

Thank you, by using only the softer B grades and drawing with a light touch i can blend softer tones.

any particular GSM for that Bristol you use Mark i love your shading. I know you use graphite and cotton wool if im not mistaken?

Thanks again for the post i often visit this one and the other baby too! brill mate.

Thanks very much, i'm using the Strathmore 300 series Bristol at the moment but this was done from an old Daler Bristol Pad (pure white) if i remember. Yes the cotton balls worked well on that surface and erasing back to white was a dream and worked so well. It did take so long to build up dark values though. Glad you like it Frank.
