Hi Ken and thanks! I drew this on 50lb Strathmore paper using 2h, 2b and 6b pencils. I used blending stumps, cotton swabs and tissue to smooth the texture.

No problem Yvette. I didn't think a thing about it. I'm self taught. I've been doodling for since I was small but didn't start taking it seriously until 2002. Yes, I draw every day (or at least try to). I use photo references sometimes but not always. I like to be as detailed as possible so many times a photo reference is required. I use all sorts of mediums. I just didn't post everything here. My web site is http://lyle-brown.artistwebsites.com/

The big thing I learned about observational skills is to really draw/paint...etc what you see. Learning "how" to look at things is a huge part of it. I think it's an acquired skill that comes with practice. At any rate, the most important thing is to have fun and not be too hard on yourself. Everyone is at different levels when it comes to art and I've yet to see anyone do a piece to absolute perfection. That being the case, you and I don't need to be perfect either. Take care and thanks for stopping by!
