Caught Mid Glance - Portrait Pencil Drawing Process
Hi everyone, today I'm sharing a quick expressive pencil portrait drawing with some process shots.
I was drawn to the reference image like with my previous drawing from the expressive lines. They have a certain freshness and controlled carelessness. Although they look done quick they all still point in the same direction and are carefully thought through. I think an expressive portrait needs the combination of the two.
Although the drawing was done with a mechanical pencil for the sharpest lines a 6B pencil was then needed for the darkest tones to add some depth.
Below is my final drawing it does not look exactly like the reference image but it is unique in its own way.
Completed on A5 paper with mechanical pencil and 6B pencil.
