What's up JUD? Run out of black in yet? :laugh: I used to draw landscapes with a black gel tip pen, then use a small wet paint brush to make it bleed for shading. I enjoyed it, and I love black blacks! They are hard to get with pencils. Thanks lot man. Hey, have a peek at my John Cleese? Should be up in about an hour? :grin: :hi:

Can I hire you to be my marketing rep? :laugh: :guffaw: :oO: :grin: Thanks very much!!! Actually, the eyebrows only take about 10 minutes, mustache maybe 15 mins?? I do them in layers. First, when I draw the eyes, and then I just come back to them a couple more times in the drawing and darken certain areas. If they have complicated eyebrows, with white random hairs, I FIRST scratch some hairs in the paper with a nail, then when you pencil over the lines, they appear? I read how online. Eyes on the other hand can take 1-2 hours, depending on how detailed they are? Glad you likey! :grin: :hi:
