Here's another update on my portrait of my friend Dennis (aka xislandman). I'm working on the eyes using 4H, 2H, H, B, and 2B lead. I'm trying to improve the realism in my work. Still no blending. This is also an exercise in patience (because I don't have any ). I usually rush through my portraits, especially in the end which I know ultimately hurts the drawing in the end, but not this time. He has nice multicolor eyebrows which I'm having fun developing, I'm still working on them. I'm using a circulism technique still on the skin, I'm also focusing on the texture of the skin. More to come soon!
