Wow! This is just AMAZING! I love the expression on his face, and how transparent the rose at the bottom right is. The texture is brilliant and I can feel so much emotions from this. Your friend is lucky! You did a spectacular job!
This is gorgeous. I love the textures you created on the paper, not only from the paper itself but also from the ink and the way you moved it on the paper. The contrasting black and white is fabulous as well. I'm stunned by the accuracy you had with the ink, as it can be a bit messy to work with, but you've managed to do it brilliantly. Great work.
