Your approach is so soft and subtle, very beautiful and fun to watch it come together. I think maybe I got distracted a bit by some minor details I should not have been giving much attention to, particularly in the eyelid. I am having problems with the left eye and the shape of the mouth, I think the eye is too large and the mouth is maybe too large also, some of the shape is a bit off. I also notice the neck is too wide, I haven’t put as much time into that area as I have the face but I believe I can adjust most of these things as I go on to the next step to refine the shapes. I’ve never used charcoal on a pencil drawing before so it’s a new approach for me. Instead of willow charcoal I have a container of charcoal dust from when I sharpen my nitram sticks that I used instead though, just smeared some on with my fingers very lightly than made sure to wipe my hands so I don’t leave little prints everywhere.
Hi there ! I’ve been following this lesson a couple of weeks ago. After trying different thumbnails, here is the final sketch, with ink. I didn’t actually pushed it further. Any advice to help me improve on this ? Thanks 😃
