Pet Portraits in Pencil
Detailed Pencil Drawings
All pencil drawings are traditionally hand-drawn. The drawings are created with graphite pencils on high quality acid-free paper, called Fabriano.

Pencil Drawing Techniques
I use both hard, light and soft, dark graphite pencils to create the perfect balance between detail and contrast in my pencil portraits. My favourite graphite pencils are Staedtler, but I use other pencil brands too.
The paper I use for my pencil portraits is the Fabriano, from Italy. This paper have been produced for over seven centuries and is of highest possible quality. It supports many layers of strokes without tearing, that is why it's perfect for the artwork I create.
About My Pencil Drawings
Pencil drawings are very delicate and dynamic, with a touch of classic and timeless feeling. Everything can be drawn with a pencil because it's a very versatile medium.
There are really no limits to the pencil drawings. The only thing they lack is color. But that's really not a problem, sometimes color can get in the way and it's not even needed for an expressive peace of art.
