Those are all very good, and far more interesting than the typical static portrait. I really like them.

Now this work is though the roof indeed. You will go very far in the art world. I,ve never seen work like this that's this good. Outstanding.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Hello Rob, great work !!! I was just wondering if you can share some insight as to how you do your work. Like what types of pencils do you use and stuff like that? Do you also use any white ink or black and white ink or paint? It seems like your pencil point is super fine. So I was wondering about what type of pencils you use. Thanks!

thank you Mark!
i actually have a deviation on deviantart that will cover the materials question pretty well - http://robdolbs.deviantart.com/gallery/4438590#/d4ruvnl
i made that to specifically answer these kinds of questions :)
my fave pencils to use are definitely the staedtler mars lumographs, but as you can see in the pic i have a variety. the only thing i use for extra highlights right now is a white gel pen - i have a uni ball signo one that works really well.
funnily enough, most of the time my pencils aren't that sharp. most of my definition actually comes from blending with q tips/tortillions and using my beloved tombow mono eraser, which is super tiny and great for details!
any other questions, feel free to ask! i am happy to share :)
