Good work, might be better with a larger variety of tones. The scanning at least seems like the grey is mostly all the same grey.

This is an interesting community as I tend to do similiar things. I was thinking it might make for an interesting thing to do a theme for every 2 or 3 weeks or month even where we post a picture and then say do whatever or something. If that makes any sense. I think that would be cool, then we can see a variety of imitations. Thus focusing not only on the craft of it, but the various styles that can be seen by just doing one peice.

That would be really interesting, I think. Like a famous picture or just anything?

I think it's pretty wide open. If you do something that's not immediately obvious like the Mona Lisa or something, it would be good to include a link to the original if one is available.

I like the idea of a picture or theme for various people to work on. My girlfriend is big into the photoshop icon-making scene, and there are all these challenges where they are to take a particular person, or often a specific picture, and then they all make their versions. I'm not intertested in a competition, I just think it would be neat to see all the different ways to interpret an image, the way jazz musicians play a standard.

I know what you mean about the tones. I just did it with a regular #2 pencil, and while that's comfortable for me, it's hard to get real darks. More chiaroscuro would definitely be better.
