Sktchy Portrait #4

I’ve been doing pen and ink exclusively since the beginning of Inktober.  This morning I really wanted to sketch with graphite.  So, I found some inspiration on Sktchy and started making marks on the page.  This is what I ended up with.  The sketch was created using a range of graphite pencils from 2H up to 8B.  I used a white Prismacolor pencil for the highlights.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. I can really get into slowly building up the values in a sketch. I find it almost therapeutic whether I’m shading with graphite or hatching with a pen. It’s by far the most interesting part of sketching and drawing for me.
