I hope you don't mind i'm trying your drawing in pencil / charcoal. I love this one you did amazing. I hope i can achieve this level of work. I won't post it when its done without your permission.
I tried doing it without measuring and just running with it for practice. I will have to try the tissue and see if it blends the graphite better then a stump.
Thoughts ?

Great tones and details.  The use of dark and light really draws the eye to this very realistic drawing.  Great job and nice fine work you did.

Seriously? May I know what makes you say that?
I hope you aren't saying that just because this looks so real. If that's what made you think this is 'edited', please be aware that a LOT of people can draw more or less this well. Look around this wonderful website and you'll see many more such talented artists...
Please don't slander/insult someone else's hard work, simply because you don't believe it can be done. Instead, try to get inspired by them and reach the next level in your own art.

How do you get the tiny white highlights on each individual hair? Is there a white pencil you use? Or do you just rub out the lines and are amazingly accurate :P aha still amazing! You inspire me :)

It's done a few ways, by leaving the white of the paper and drawing around them, also going over areas with a kneaded eraser. :)

For those hairs I leave the white of the paper untouched and draw around the area. I then go back over the hairs with an eraser. I used an electric eraser by Sakura, I bought it online. I have also used just a kneaded eraser to lighten up hair and other areas.
