Daily Deviation

Given 2013-11-03
Suggester says ' put hours of effort, patience and passion onto this magnificent artwork. There is a strong contrast between light and dark, and overall, the lines are very defined. Absolutely wonderful piece of art and perfect self-portrait for the artist.'Self portrait by *markstewart ( Suggested by zidaria and Featured by ArtByCher )

Superb draftsmanship, Mark.  You set a high standard for the rest of us to follow.  Some of us may never reach your level; but seeing your work inspires us to keep trying.   :icondragonwant:

A pinnacle achievement; texture, contrast, expression and composition all superb.  Doing that beard must have taken an age using only graphite pencil and eraser.
