This is a wonderful drawing.

I love the details on the hand especially with the wrinkles on the old hand. The softness of the blending on the values gives a realistic style on your drawing. Also, your work gives a warm mood to see the contrast of the old and young come together in harmony:heart:.

You really did an awesome job on your drawing, keep up the artiful work:thumbsup:.
