Maryna (Work in Progress)

here's a final update for tonight.  I can't step away from this, she's starting to haunt me...always wanting more attention.   I tweaked the shadows a bit more.   Gonna stop for tonight, my eyes are starting to burn.   More to come tomorrow!

Maryna Portrait Update

Here's an update on my portrait of Maryna.  I added her hair and will be making adjustment to the shadows.  For the hair in shadow, I used a 2B pencil.  For the lighter side, I used a 4H, 2H, H, and a B pencil.  I picked out the highlighted strands using a Tombow Mono Zero eraser stick.  More to come soon!  

Portrait of Maryna

I'm working on a bunch of commissioned portraits, here's a work in progress update of one of them, this is Maryna.  She is 11 x 14 graphite on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper.  I'm using Prismacolor Torquoise Drawing Pencils 4H, 2H, H, B, 2B, and 6B leads.  No blending tools, just using the pencil making tiny tiny overlapping circular motions.  More to come!
