yeah it helped me alot :-P , i am so sorry if i'm asking you all these things but i am a noob(as you can see in my gallery ahahahah XD) and I would really like to improve to reach your results...i would like to ask you just on thing more, i've read really thousands of tutorial on how to do a photorealistic portrait but each one  is showing a different method , and , the most important thing  , they use different pencils...I see that alot of users use Mechanical pencils to achive best results and  electric ereaser... but i am really confused right now about the process and the tools to use ... could you tell me your steps and how you use your pencils , how and when you blend etc... thank you for your time :-)

well, i don't have a single idea about electric eraser and i don't think it's necessary to have one. i often use mechanical pencil (lead 0,5 mm) for very small details and very soft shadows, but mostly i use 8B and HB. i make rough sketches ( i'm too lazy for proper sketches) with HB, then draw with HB and blend, again draw with HB and blend and so on, until all soft shadows are complete. then i draw with 8B on darker shadows (it's like layers - HB is under 8B), then highlight with an eraser... those are the major steps :) there's a different story with drawing hair - i have a very stupid technique for drawing hair, but i think it works almost perfectly. i think you should experiment a lot and try to find your own technique, because i don't know... i never used tutorials and i never asked any questions from any artists - but i tried to achieve the same (or even better) results without using crazy tools like electric eraser. if you are worried about the tools - mine are quite trivial, koh-i-noor pencils and eraser + cotton :)
