It's been a few weeks since my last post. I've been working hard on this portrait of Trace Adkins. I have about 80 hours total on it so far and have about another 30 before it's completed.
I'm now using a circulism technique because I want to create a little texture on the face. I have about 3 layers of graphite on the face.
So far I'm using a 7H, 4H, B, and an HB Prismacolor Torquoise drawing pencils.
