thanks so much! I used graphite pencils. hb through 6b. an di also used a blending stump a.k.a. tortillion. once you lay in the amount of graphite you want in an area you blend it even in to the paper so that pencil strokes don't show. then to get texture you kind of have to go back and forth doing this. adding and taking away (with a kneaded eraser) to give it the final texture you like. thats just how i do it though :D thanks again for the comment.

This is amazing artwork. The mustache is what attracted me to it. I love mustaches. I thought it was a photo at first.

oh, the other one was larger and therefore more detailed than mine, but in my opinion the excessive amount of detail was kind of gross. anyways it got a daily deviation and on the front page of the most popular, not that mine could but i was still jealous lol. your works great, its not so detailed but you do it very stylistically, very nice. if you want to go for what i have here my advice is patience and a lot of attention to detail such as texture.

I've not seen the other portrait, this one is exceptional. You have captured the man here.
This the sort of quality I am aiming for in my own work

Many thanks. Patience is the biggest thing to learn I think. But will take your comments on board nevertheless.
