    Hello friends,
    here I will show you the way how I paint this picture of the young Elvis.
    I do all work with my H&S Evolution 0,2mm and Schmincke black on a Schöllershammer No.4 Airbrushpaper 35x50cm.
    The start is a stencil. I cut it out from a print of the image. I begin with the darkest areas.
    For the textures I use all the technics I learn here. Scratching with the fiberpen and scalpell or steelwool.
    Erasing with the electric eraser or pen.
    The important thing for me is the sharpness of the focus areas and the different textures of skin, leather, wool and hair. Mostly I try the technic on a testpiece.

    Excellent job. Nothing to improve from my side. That watch strap is excellent.

    I think it's the combination of the color the airbrush paper and my AB technic.
    Of course it's possible that the light conditions not good when I taken the photo.
    I only use Schmincke black for my B&W paintings.

    You are very correct on the colour of the paper, I use the same paper for my graphite drawings and they have an easy to look at warm feel as a result, the paper and your approach is a pleasant combination:thumbsup: and your work is always stunning:)
