Holy cow! The little button on the left looks very much like a sepia photograph. I know I've told you before, but you are amazingly talented and if you started selling these, I'd buy them!

Thanks, guys, I really had to work at this one to get just the right light and dark balance. This one took about six hours off and on...

Oh my god!!! That is seriously the best one yet. I am floored. damn. Looks like a filtered photo it's so good. crap.

I used a darker base tone on this one then the others I think it came out pretty good--I also used conte' crayon for the white instead of chalk, the crayon is much softer the chalk and gives it a richer white

Stunnig. Looks just like a photograph image of them in sepia tone. A big thumbs up from me.(What am I now? Ebert and Roeper?)

To quote someone earlier, "Bloody Hell!" That really looks like a photograph in a sepia style. I am stunned and amazed as I am every time when I see your work. *Stands and gives you a standing ovation*

Yeah this is nice. Is this a photoshop'd screencap or drawn/chalk/something freehand?

Hand drawn on cason sepia paper from a screen cap ..I drew the whole thing in graphite first, sprayed it with a fixitive, then started with the whites, gradually building them up. This technique work best with a high contrast picture like this one and when the light is from above.

Holy Canoli! This is my new favorite image of yours. It's replaced your drawing of River post-Reaver massacre as my desktop.
