Any critiquing of my Realism Art is happily accepted. I use various size leads, kneadable erasers, and pen erasers to create the shadowing, highlighting, and depth I want to create in my artwork.

I love the precise detail of this art work, keep up the good work!

I have never tried a mechanical pencil for art, do they keep a sharp point?  I love realism art, nice work.

Great look!  One comment, I would add some highlight to the middle water drop.  The one of the left is perfect and the other looks unfinished. 

Beautiful work.....I also use mechanical pencils.... the new pentel 8b lead is great!

You did a nice job. I agree with the comments regarding your water drops and would deepen the shading on the back leaf, as it goes behind the top leaf and tulip.
