Yeah, i know all about it. It's one of the frustrating things when it comes to digitalising the artworks. There is so much detail that gets lost.

Mind blowing detailing and fantastic stylization. I'm getting carpal tunnel syndrome just looking at it. Stunning visuals.

how do you have the patience to draw with such amazing detail?

I don't have any patience, I am hyper for the most part and have to constantly be doing something.

haha well thats awesome that you can concentrate that hyperness into the skill to draw with such detail haha wish i had your gift. how long does it usually take you to finish a full detailed piece?

Time, it depends. This one was probably 90-100 hours. I have one that took around 300 hours, crazy...

omg thats insane i would have procrastinated on it so badly i doubt it would ever get done. but i bet that one that took 300 hours was pretty amazing.

wow... yeah that is definitely amazing. something i might never be able to accomplish. once i have the general idea down from my head then i procrastinate on finishing it. especially coloring. my drawings are more simple even with the small amount of detail i may put into them. but that work of art right there would take me ages to complete and id really have to want to return to it a lot. Bravo! :clap:
