well I love...Hugh and House your work is very amazing ...your very talented..sorry for me english is not very well, hugh has very nice characteristics and expresses a lot with his face, I hope to keep doing more work for him, because I love your style, in relation to the technique, I like to be in pencil, or maybe you used a program?? but this perfect, usually I draw in pencil and then I retouched with a program .. I can improve contrast and give a better way I congratulate you good job
I would like to see a little highlight in the pupil of the eye on the dark side, and have thought about combining ink and graphite on the same piece? It looks like a few areas, like between his collar and chin on his right side would benefit from a purer black to give a little contrast in the dark values. Also, personally I think a 2H pencil would provide a basic skin tone in the highlight areas , and I would reserve the white for a small area in the eyes. I like to make the eyes the area of highest contrast to draw attention there so that the viewer is aided to make a connection, eye-to-eye. Just my opinion.
