Memories of Youth by HardenedInk Memories of Youth by HardenedInk
I loved doing this one. I added the photograph as an after thought really. It's actually a small version of a real photograph of my Great Grandmother and Grandmother back in the thirties.

Visually stunning, the detail work *espescially on the fabric pieces for the coat and hat* is incredible. Good touch with the photo in his hand, brings the whole scene together in one neat package.

What an excellent drawing! The composition is really excellent! The detail in all of the wrinkles in the man's face are very well done, and the subtle yet contrasted and well placed folds and shadows of his suit is certainly a highlight of this piece. Such great rendering really makes the piece, for me. I love it. THe photo is definitely a nice touch!! :D

A beautiful pic. His emotion really shines, and I think you did a great job in bringing that out. One thing I don't like is how splotchy his face is. It looks like a paper bag, really. Other than that, shading is great, textures are awesome, and it's an overall great picture. :thumbsup:

I agree with what's his/her face, this IS perfect. the only thing it needs to look just like a photo is a backround
