ABOUT THIS PICTURE
8.5 x 11″, graphite on paper. A simple portrait sketch that took me about half an hour to make. I used a black-and-white reference photo. My goal wasn’t to focus on shading so much, as it was to practice placing the features of the face. In this picture, you can even see my guidelines, particularly the eyebrows, eyes, and nose. I shaded a tiny bit on the right hand side of the image, which was representative of the hard light / shadow in the reference photo.
