Weekly Face on Weds

If I keep this up I may start losing friends lol I am under no illusions about my drawing abilities, I certainly don't claim to be good at portraits...but I do quite like doing them...and I don't think they look truly dreadful. ...although lots of room for improvement. 

So I started with a quick outline..


then I started to shade the hair.. 


more work on the hair..


trying to get in the darkest darks I really should learn to switch to a softer pencil but I never do. I stick with a regular HB throughout... lol


all done, or at least as done as  it will ever be.. I wonder if anyone will recognize her?

  2. I recognised Gillian from the first sketch, even though I have only seen pictures of her, small ones at that on web pages! Pretty impressive!
