First thing is beautiful job on the textures in this piece. Its pretty obvious the transitions from cloth to skin to metal are all prevalent.I have never seen such quality work done in my life time as far as graphite pencil go. THe folds in the cloth give the entire piece a sense of reality. The gesture is all so realistic and really pops out. The lighting in the piece is very well done, the whitest areas are white and darkest are dark.Making so many wonderful portraits this one actually took me out of my chair. Great job Ambro....a real master living among us.

The first thing that caught my eye here was the sheer detail and intricate work you have done with the wrist-watch. It is mind-boggling to see that you got the sheen of the light reflection so perfectly !! The rest of the portrait is as usual beyond comparison standards :)
