Good day!

I'm back again with another artwork to share.

So earlier, I was fixing my art materials after finishing my commissioned artwork. I sorted them out based on their uses (style), that would be for colored portraits; graphite/charcoal portraits; and for calligraphy and stencil.

I suddenly got an idea to practice using graphite medium since it's the least that I use.

Material I used for this drawing are:

  • Graphite pencils: 3b, 5b and 8b

  • Charcoal pencil (medium)

  • Mechanical pencil 0.5

  • Eraser

  • Flat brush

As usual, I started the portrait by drawing the outline;

After that, I defined the dark areas and shadows using 5b and 8b;

I added details and light shades using 3b;

I defined the highlights by using eraser;

After completing the face, I followed the hair. I used charcoal pencil and 5b. I highlight some areas and strands with the use of eraser.

For the shirt, I just filled it with black sharpie because my hand were sooooo tired from the previous portrait I drew. So, yeah I accept it I'm really lazy! LOL

And by the way, the reference I used was Audrey Hepburn, British Actress (1948–1989) and Humanitarian (1954–1992).

I know it's not that good, I'm still practicing this medium but I hope you'll like it! Thank you. 😉

Is it just me that thinks the eye proportions for the other eye looks weird? Or was it because it was rushed?
