The model in the photograph had exquisite features that I had to try and draw. I must admit I’m not satisfied with this piece. I struggle with portraits especially when trying to bring out the realism in them. I first wanted this to be a rough sketch, which is what I was doing. However, what I initially started off as crosshatching, I found myself starting to shade. The techniques I was using took a gear so I became confused as to how I wanted this piece to look like. Did I want to have more of a sketch vibe or a realistic drawing? I guess at the end it was both. Which is why this piece still looks unfinished to me because I didn’t settle on one technique and didn’t have an end goal. Anyways, lesson for next time is always have a plan!
