Here's a self portrait that I started. This was for a demo I did on my drawing technique on Thursday 11/15/2012. I used a 0.5mm Pentel P205 mechanical pencil with a 2B lead for the entire drawing.
I blended using a medium tortillion, toilet paper, a cotton swab, and a hake brush. For the tone, I used circulism then blended the small areas with a medium tortillion. For the larger areas, I used the toilet paper. I blend in a circular fashion as well. The highlights, I'm picking out with a kneaded eraser. The hair on my eyebrows were done using a Tuff Stuff Eraser stick. I drew in each strand then blended with a medium tortillion then picked out the highlights by "drawing" the highlighted strands with the Tuff Stuff Eraser stick. More to come soon!!!
