    Thanks everyone!
    Butterfly88 it depends. Occasionally I will spend all day on a drawing and will get it done in a few hours. Other times I will spread it out over several days.

    I like how these celebrities are recognizable, but not mechanically so. You've found each person's signature quirk(s) and yet put them inside faces that seem to belong to other spirits. Maybe it feels that way because the eyes and gazes are particularly powerful. That might not have been your intention, but the results are intriguing. Do you work professionally ?

    To me, these are all very powerful mages. Just like all good art, there is a lot more to them than just the graphite on paper -- there is depth, there is emotion, there is communication between the artist and the viewer -- between the image and the viewer, and the more I look at them, the more I see. Genuine artwork here (IMHO). I think you are a talented artist with your own distinctive style.

    Congratulations,
    Audry Leigh

    I don't draw professionally, although it might be fun to try sometime.

    Hi Moonlitsky , thank you! I have tried painting many times and I have never been able to achieve the results I want. So I took up pencil sketching and it has been wonderful and relaxing :) 

    I must add, your profile is adorable. I love cats!

    Actually, I'd bet our good enough to make some money. You defiantly will be someday if you keep working at it. Have you ever tried charcoal or pastel? You do the whole shading thing well so the seem right up your alley. Pen and ink can be fun too, and its my personal preference if I'm drawing. You should be able to get a far amount of supplies at a staples or Wallmart or something. It might not be professional quality, but its cheep and good for getting used to whatever medium you are working in. I always suggest branching out and trying new things. Do you take classes or anything like that?

    Thank you :) 
    When I started getting serious about this, I bought a big pack of drawing pencils from Walmart, along with some erasers and paper. I'm considering branching into colored pencils as well, maybe when I start again.

    I really like your style, how you do you shading in blocks of graphite rather than blending everything out smoothly! It really brings out personality in your drawings :)
