How.  How did you make this without turning it into a giant smudge-fest?  How did you get rid of your sketchy lines so cleanly?  I think you are some kind of sorcerer. A Pencil sorcerer.  A … penc-orcerer.

  Everything you do is brilliant by the way.  Can't wait to see more, so glad I found your stuff.  I am super inspired by your work.

Truly some of the best figurative work out there today.  Phenomenal technique and personality.  I think art of this caliber transcends opinions and is simply objectively great.

Actually, i was looking through my sketchbook and i just realized why. Couple of weeks ago i made a quick tongue-in-cheek sketch of a tentacle monster wearing an anime character mask on top of one of the 'arms' who is trying to approach an anime fan, but i forgot about it because i was doodling randomly. This is quite weird, even though it happened before to think of something apparently random and discover soon that somebody else already did something strangely similar.

That's so interesting. I think that happens to all of us, we're all affected by that and despite our conscious efforts it comes out. It's interesting how a similar visual thing of the anime mask monster came about from a different set of circumstances. I think that the combination of these visual elements make us unique, but each element on their own comes from somewhere. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for answering, i was afraid that sounded a bit crazy =P
Actually..i don't want to push it, but i found this comic like 10 minutes ago [link]
(Even if i'll find more of these, i'll just stop here or you'll think i have some weird obsession and i'm googling this stuff or something.)

Thanks. I use my favourite- Fabriano 600 gsm HP Smooth. Really good for getting layers of rendering, I also used the knife and sandpaper to create texture.
