You are magnificent. I can't stand it. It is not possible to draw like that. Just when I thought that there are incredible artist in DA, you turn up. You are very, very good and I am afraid I have to watch your work. I love to draw portraits but I am only sort of ok in animals, waves, flowers and certain landscapes. With people it is just too unforgiving. I can also sketch very quickly landscapes but not people. That is to me, I think kinda weird and difficult to fathom.

Thanks for all of your comments, I'll stick to this one for now... I've found that drawing landscapes is extremely difficult but I'm more comfortable drawing people. It's a matter of drawing what you're happiest doing. I think that's the key to making better drawings. That, and extreme amounts of patience, haha.

Mmm, that is so strange and difficult to comprehend. You do such incredible complex work. The face however, absorbs so much energy and concentration out of me and yet waves, volcanoes and trees flows naturally. The brain is indeed complex, somehow along the way I think the face just didn't click for me. I don't remember doing many landscapes as a child. Anyway hope to see more of your work as they are so inspirational.
