Here's a very small update. I'm starting Bella's eye. I used a General's Soft Charcoal pencil for the dark shadow tones in the eye. The then used a 0.5mm mechanical pencil with a 2B lead for the lighter tone. I'll take a better close up of the eye and post it tomorrow. I really want to try to show the detail. I'm focusing on realism with this but again, I don't want to copy the reference photo exactly.
