Journal with extra information:

Am I still active? Drawing?Hey all, it's been a while since I posted anything on dA.  Does this mean I am not active anymore?  Am I still busy with drawing.
No & Yes.
Months ago, I posted a journal that I would be posting less updates, and I guess I was keeping my word :-)
Am I still active in Drawing?  Yes, even more then before.  When I started drawing late 2011, I gave myself two years, to see what I could do.  The first months, and year, I just searched interesting references, which sparkled my attention, and which had technical difficulties to cope with.  I challenged myself and tried learning my own techniques for texturing, shadowing and adding highlights.
I guess all my finished drawings in my gallery are the result of that experimentation.  
After I finished my first drawing   in december 2011, I worked on my first real drawing.  A self-designed vision in Photoshop based upon some lyrics from Gary Jules version of Mad World.

The suggester said: It's one of the best graphite drawings I've ever seen. And the dedication to put 500 hours of work in a drawing is totally worth to be honored. The Last Breath by =HyperionDreams ( Suggested by Ileina and Featured by Astralseed )

Wow this drawing is so awesome! :love: First of all, I love your shading and the interaction between light and shadow. You created such an intense plasticity. It's amazing. :dummy:
Besides, I quite like how you elaborated all the details such as wrinkles and light reflection...
You are a brilliant and very talented artist. :clap: Please keep it up. I'm looking forward to seeing new works. :iconmoesmileplz:
