Metallica. Young James by traine-sabatte Metallica. Young James by traine-sabatte
:bulletblue: Size 50x65 cm
:bulletblue: About 20 hours
:bulletblue: Pencils from 4H to 8B

:bulletred: New drawing that I've just finished.
The hair was really difficult to draw because the reference picture was too dark.
Please tell me what you think about it :)

Thanks!
There is a tutorial by Cataclysm-X that I find very useful: [link]
I'm far from drawing hair as well as she does but she explains the basis, and it helped me a lot to understand how hair works.

Constructive critics extinted or what?
So: You made good shading, James has characteristic snarl and so wrinkles, you exposed them good :) The weakest point is hair but you pointed it out, well everyone has their own technique :) but in my opinion you should try to work with it a little more :)
