Wow. It's rare to find traditional art of Jack Frost rendered so realistically. You did a great job shading Jack's face, especially his eyes. And that staff, it just GLOWS. *_* I love those misty swirls you added around the staff.I think a darker background would have brought them out more though, along with Jack's hair. Which looks like it's being blown by some wind, which is cool, but I think some of those curlier locks could have done with more cast shadow to make to make the hair more realistic. The ear bothers me - it looks too tilted forward and flat. ^^; More shading on the inside, near the ear canal, and on the outside edge, away from the head, would probably have helped. Still, this is a gorgeous drawing. :)

i have a question if i may ask i have these types of pencils 2h,b,2b,4b,hb, and 6b what should i use for the shading in the skin and hair for this picture?
[link] trying to make it look like the picture and my teacher keeps saying i need to make the hair look real and shade more and i saw this and thought maybe you could help me please?

Is it okay if you send me a work in progress with what you have? I'll be able to tell
you much more clearly what i did and such xD also, i only used, F,Hb, HB2 and B2 for his hair, i didnt go any darker
than that, i used the rest of the darker shades for his hoddie and the bg mainly.
His hair is all about negative spaces and such for me.
