Hi xalidos, well its done using pencils, varying from 3h to 4b. I used a soft tissue for blending on the arms and background, and also used a torillion for the detailing around the face and the deep colours in the folds of his shirt. I aslo used negative drawing, using Blue tack. It took me quite along time, as I wanted to get as much detail as possible.. I have attached the photo I used so you can have a go... alot of time and patience is the key, and break it down into little areas, dont tackle the whole image, you will get lost.. hope that helps..
