Work in Progress - "Dennis"

Here's my line drawing to my newest portrait, "Dennis".

This is 11 x 14 graphite on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper.  For my line drawing, I used a Pentel P205 mechanical pencil with a 2B lead.  I call this stage of my process the "ugly stage". My lines are drawn quickly and look like a two year old did them. I use my line drawing for placement of features only. I map out where I want everything, including light and shadow. This is the foundation of my portrait process. More to come soon!
