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!!!
