Oh boy, first assignment time! I'm just a beginner but so far I feel like my pace is closer to the intermediate, I'm like level 1.5! Well, what to do? I guess I'll just draw a beautiful peartrait ;)) Shading was done with 2B and F (Which stands for F-You-Proko-F-Is-A-Good-Pencil (peardon my french)).
Hello all. I have to say this went better than I thought it would. Face proportions are off, but I wasn't really looking at that, I was looking at it like a collection of shapes rather than a face and was pleasantly surprised at how close it was in the end despite misplaced ear, crooked eyes, lopsided cheekbones. I have trouble deciding highlight/shadow values sometimes and this exercise definitely helped.
