Smile(pencil on paper)

in #art4 years ago


Hi steemians,
Here is one of my favourite artworks,did this for a friends birthday,was impromptu tho ☺ ,but I ended up loving it.

So I made use of more of Graphite pencils than Charcoal pencils,which was only used for the hair.
Graphite grades used are 2b,4b, & 6b

Below are the few progress shots taken.
Shading of the face and adding of details with my 2b graphite pencil,then blended softly with my finger

Developed the shading towards the neck, the shoulders and the chest afterwards

Sketched and shaded the cloth,using the 6b graphite pencil for dark shades,then filled in the missing details with my 4b graphite.

Finished shot with background

Thanks a lot guys,for reading through,Curate & drop your comments below.
