Great job. I love the shading techniques, and I hope that everyone saying that you "copied" this realizes that you used stock as reference, which is completely fine, and you shaded on your own, and everything else. I love it-- you're very talented!~
I did actually draw this back in 2000 using either an HB or 2B pencil on heavyweight paper based on photo reference.
I scanned it in 2001 so i could submit it and the scanning process gave it the mild sort of sepia tone it has which I preferred to the black and white original. In 2002 I made some minor alterations to increase the dark in the dark areas and I changed the shadow behind the jawbone.

I'm sorry to hear there's gossip going on about your art
that's not good..
I just didn't want to be rude to anyone... I never even saw anyone else upload this drawing. plus, why in the world would a staff member upload a drawing they didn't make? maybe it's kinda like a game of 'telephone', where one person tells someone else something and they hear it or perceive it wrong.
