Kevin WIP 1

by rickcorbett in Work in Progress

Here's a new portrait I'm working on. I'm focusing on light and shadow on this one. This is 14 x 11 graphite on Bristol Vellum paper. For pencils, I'm using 0.5mm Pentel P205 mechanical pencils with 4H, 2H, H, B, and 2B leads. I'm blending using a medium tortillion, cotton swabs, soft tissues, and a hake brush. I'm lighting the highlighted areas by dabbing a kneaded eraser in the area I want to lighten. I'll be posting an update soon!

    looks good so far

    Quick tip: Please don't forget to add tags to your work, it will help you gain more views and other artists can find your work faster .. you can do this easily when you upload an image .. the second raw ask for tags .. type in the first 2-3 letters and you will get some choices .. same if you uploaded the image already .. go under your image where it says .. Add Tags and follow the steps above.
