I love how she's angling her face, and I think this is the best one from your gallery that I've seen so far. I'm not really a big Charlize Theron fan, but this is so beautiful I just have to fav it. :)

WOOOOOOOOOW!!!! Amazing, i noticed how much difference a paper makes, i have been drawing on a really cheap paper recently and it's just so bad, you could never make such a lifelike drawings on a plain paper. You've got some serious issues, and please don't treat them, it's called talent ;-)

An awesome effort of the 2nd most beautiful women from my home country South Africa, do yourself a favour and draw a pencil sketch of Kerry McGregor, South african lingerie model. Excellent work with Charlise though

Fabulous work!! Sorry it has taken me a bit of time to visit your stunning gallery. I admire theway you use your pencils especially the fact that you do not rub the graphite to buggery. I prefer a looser style and a line in my drawings, because I feel pencil needs to have a 'line'. It is therefore fantastic to see someone who has mastered the craft of perfect shading - as you have done. Bravo to you and thanks for the feature on Charlize - a former country-girl of mine.
