H's Granny

by LilaeaBluecoat in Album

Way too much procrastinating on this one!
Was a difficult picture to work with and therefore I took lots of breaks.

The style is a little different from you're used to from me. Usually I go for high-contrast, as realistic as possible style, but that just wouldn't work for this one. Partially because of the not so good reference (using more contrast would run me the risk of losing the likeness), but also because the slightly softer style fits this elderly lady.
In fact, the scan shows it even more contrasted in some parts than it is (the lighter spots on her skin for example are nót as prominent and much more subtle in the original).

Materials:
- Reference
- Hahnemühle Nostalgie A4
- Staedtler Mars Lumograph and Derwent graphite pencils 2H through 2B
- Mechanical pencils H and B 0.3 mm
- Blu-Tack, Tombow Mono Zero Eraser, rubber colour shaper, electric eraser.
