Michael Phelps - Details by akaLilith Michael Phelps - Details by akaLilith
I wasn't very sure to submit these details. It took forever to make the water look convincingly realistic and I was worried that exposing the pencil strokes would somehow make the actual drawing look less real.

However, I decided to submit them anyway. Some people've asked me how to draw water and honestly I don't know how to answer. I hope the close-up details can explain it better.

Wow, you are fanastic! My mom and I were in awe as we browsed through your gallery. You're amazingly talented.
How long did it take to draw this? The way that you drew the water is somewhat awe inspiring! You're one of the best portrait drawers out there, I'd say, and I'm not saying that lightly! :love:

I'd love to see less blurry macro shots, one where the paper grain would show behind the whites!
