Galadriel by Trichardsen Galadriel by Trichardsen
Picture came out a bit more grainy than I had hoped for, but close enough.

Roughly 40 hours, Prismacolor Col-erase Black on 85 lbs A4 paper.

Glad you think so, but it is one of my earlier drawings, and I did draw the neck part a bit too fast, so I think it needs some more work.
But I have left it up on the wall as a reminder of those mistakes. :D

:) Which is why pencils have erasers.

I bow down to your awesomeness and deadly ninja skill with a pencil... Truly truly amazing, I really mean that. You inspire me.
I feel that you may have to start a small 10 min Youtube Tut on what and how you do things. A gift truly worth sharing =)

Watching patiently on new work.

what kind of paper works, and where do you buy it?
also where can u buy electric erasers? u know?

The paper used for this drawing is this super cheap paper I dont really use much anymore, Designer Galerie Scetchblock, A4 acidfree paper.
I do not use it that much any more cause its slightly rough, but it is very uneven, so it can be very rough in a small section then smooth in another, it is great paper to just throw in some fast scetches on, but not really as long drawing.

If you want great paper, the Strathmore Bristol vellum 300 series is really very good, you can buy that along with electric erasers on www.dickblick.com.

does it matter on paper
I never really pay attention to what paper i use

Thank you.
It does matter what paper you use, too smooth and creating textures can prove quite tricky, too rough and getting that smooth feel gets quite harder.
You can create those on pretty much any paper, but choosing the right paper will make it a lot easier on yourself.
