After I started to study Ghraphics, the first thing I really wanted to learn is photorealistic pencil drawings. I guess many artists start like that. I realy loved to develop my pencil skills and techniques and I made a lot of pencil portraits during the years. I had quite a lot of pencil portrait commissions as well but after a while didn't made any pencil arts or just a really few.
Nowadays I do only one or two pencil drawings a year and I don't do them as commissions anymore - unless I get a really good offer.
