Portrait of Allison

Here's my finished portrait of Allison.  I've sprayed the drawing with fixative and now can package up and ship the drawing to her new owner (Allison herself)....I hope she likes it

Here's a work in progress scan of my newest portrait.  This is Allison, she's 11 x 14 graphite on Bristol Smooth paper.  I'm using Pentel P205 0.5mm mechanical pencil with a 2B lead only.  I'm blending with a medium tortillion and soft tissue paper.  For the highlighted strands of hair, I'm using a Papermate Tuff Stuff eraser stick which I've cut at an angle so that I get a nice sharp edge.  I then "draw" the individual highlighted strands of hair.  More to come soon!!!
