I didn't know that there were many versions of this work. I just know I saw someone make one and wanted my OC drawn like it, so she made it for me! But this is AWESOME! THIS would have inspired me just as much if I had seen yours first instead of hers! The coloring! YES
How do you create such strong outlines with only pencil, and how to do you create such good tones. Do you use white pencil to get the highlights in his hair or do you leave it white from paper? By the way this is a great picture!
