A few more graphite drawings

Since taking the portrait drawing class last month, I’ve done a few more graphite drawings (click/tap to enlarge):

I’ve had some fun with these, and enjoyed putting some new techniques to use, such as blending shadow areas with a paintbrush, and most importantly, keeping my pencils razor sharp!

I’ll probably do more graphite drawings, but I also want to try some charcoal portraits. I love how dark you can get with charcoal, and I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of effects I can create (and mess I can make!)

I have ordered some charcoal. Stay tuned!
