very nice! The pencil sketch photos this week seem to be working very well for me. I believe that they are reminding me that artistic tallent is something that I wish I had :) Good shot... - jmsetzler

I wish I could draw that well! I think I'd like the lighting a little more toward the front of the shot to reduce the shadow of the hand.

Interesting idea, want either more or none of the picture being copied. Also a little more hand and little less shadow beneath it. Like that I can see the texture of the paper and pencil upon it.

The detail is very good. Great depth.

Nicely taken shot but Im not sure about the framing. There's a large empty area in the bottom right that doesnt really work for me. Very impressive drawing though!

This is a good photo and a great drawing too. I wish it were a bit brighter and the shadow from the hand taken off the legs so we could see them better. Also could the photo that is being drawn from be more in the photo? Maybe at least up to the spot the pencil is currently drawing on? Great photo and good luck in the challenge.
