Been working on a portrait of my kids. Found a great picture.... not too silly and not too serious. I'm using graphite on Strathmore 400 Dry Media Paper. The image is around 7"x7". It's been awhile since I've attempted this. I did a sketch of my son and a self portrait in the last two weeks for practice. I tried my son's portrait on Stonehenge paper but the paper just isn't for me.
Here's the first session. A WIP stands for Work in Progress if you didn't know.
I'm building up values and detail. Just plugging away basically.
I'm not going to get too detailed in this drawing. I like the looseness of it. Besides I don't know if I could get realistically tight anyway. Thanks for looking!
