Here is my first update of a new piece I am working on. The first layer is still in progress and does as of yet not fully represent the final portrait as it will be. There will be several more layers of progressive increases in value added, and modeling of the facial features, eyes, hair, etc.
The drawing didn't fit into my scanner and I had to photograph it instead and adjust in Photoshop. The result isn't as accurate to the original drawing as if it where scanned. Next update coming shortly.
Size of portrait is 12" x 12"
Pencils used so far: 4h and 2h
