Child Head & Shoulder Portrait



Here is a portrait I was working on this last week. I had two pictures available to draw from, both not the best in quality when blown up to a size where one could see any detail. The better one of the two I used for this portrait was passport size. Ughh...not the most exciting drawing experience I must say. But, it is DONE....and I am happy about that.
Pencils used: 5H, 3H, HB, 2B, 5B
