aww.. thank you so much! :heart:
Yes, that happens rarely. I sat on it for weeks, but I simply wasn't satisfied with it until then. Well actually I am still not and probably never will, but it's always like this with portraits :D

oil pastels?jesus,how much of your time has it took?i ried ones to draw the portrait with those and it was mego difficult,so i decidet that i won't ever try to do the portrait using oil pastels.Using them for landscape is nice tho.

Well my point is that's an exellent work!

heh yeah oil pastels are pretty rough and it was difficult to draw with them. My trick was that I scratched some colour from the paper to create thin lines (: oh if you ask me how long... well maybe about 40 hours? Its hard to say, I sat on it for weeks ;)
thanks for this lovely comment! :love:
