My 4th Portrait finished! I didn't have the heart to call it 'Blending and Hair Study', as the model is a beauty!
Pic is about 7” by 10” on A4, using graphite pencils 2H – 8B
I've tried to look at blending and hair and try out a few new techniques, some of which have worked better than others! The hair still looks scratchy, so any hints and tips would be really welcome!
I also haven't got the features that well either, as the face doesn't look quite right
I've tried fixing it as much as I can, but I think I rushed into shading before making sure I was happy with the proportions first! Lesson learned for next time! My works in progress are all in my Scrapbook as usual! [link]

His gallery is pretty amazing stuff and I saw this photo and thought 'I have GOT to try and draw that!'
Hope you all like it, but it's really a practice piece, as I try and improve, so please give me some tips!
