my pencil artworks
are created on a heavy art paper and I use only fine artist grade materials from top manufacturers.
Drawings can vary from a rough sketch, to very detailed drawings and usually more detail means more time to produce and more expense.( I try and create a nice detailed drawing at a reasonable price )
The size of a pencil drawing can determine how much detail is put into a portrait , if a customer picks a small size ( say 10 by 12 inches ) for a full length figure you will not get anywhere near as much detail as you would in a larger drawing of just the face.
It is best to keep size in mind when ordering your pencil artwork as a small size drawing may not suit your portrait due to the amount of detail needed
This is why my smallest size is 12 by 16 inches
