Close-up Graphite Portrait



WORK IN PROGRESS - Update4 

Another small update for those who are following along.  The hair isn't finished yet; it needs to be darker still, and the side burn needs some adjustment.  For some reason the ear shows up much lighter here than in real life.                         Tonight I'll dedicate some time to add the shirt.

Its coming together beautifully. Graphite work is always so hard to photograph/scan isn't it?

Thank you! You are so right, Sue! I just can't manage to get the depth of tone to show as it is in real life. Even by running it through Photoshop to tweak it to get it as close to the way it is in rl, it just falls short. I miss film photography, because then it was easy to get excellent photographs.

This is looking good, Christine, even with the way the photo shows it.
