Great work! Wondering what type of paper do you use?

Cheers Scott --

I use a heavy, acid free Cartridge paper. Pretty much standard for anything artists use for drawing. The only thing I do differently is that I work on the back of the paper because I don't like the tiny ripples on the front. 

I don't like my paper dictating how my pencil interacts with the surface.

This picture is truly amazing, I felt lucky to find a picture that resembled Clint in an artistic way, because most of Clint pictures in DA are photographs or photo-manipulations, so I'm proud of you for making great composition with no more than ten colors, the only thing I don't like are the red letters and the Japanese signs because it ruins the picture essence, but anyway I love the drawing! Cheers my friend ;)

Thanks for your thoughtful comment Rinzekatze - warmly appreciated.

The red 'Japanese' signs are a watermark to prevent unauthorised printing and art theft - they are NOT on the original artwork.

You're welcome :) eamm yeah I knew it is to avoid art theft and those things, but anyway I would've placed it in the far right and not over Clint's face... just my opinion

Thanks moccadsgn!! Kind of you to say…

Actually, it took me years to train my pencils to do things properly, now I just put a piece of paper on the desk and I walk out and leave them to work alone.

When I get back I find they have done things pretty much as I hoped they would..

Great pencils!

No way Mark… I’ve been training hard my pencils for months, showing them your work to learn. But there is no way… I begin to think that talent lies in you, not in your pencils :)

As always, a great pleasure to see your wonderful work, Mark!
