In keeping up with trying to be frequent with my blog posts, here is another short process on my drawing of my friend Charlene. I began with the basic block-in and refining my line until the drawing resembles the model. Once the line work is done, i began shading in with both light and dark tones at the same time. The first photo was taken with my cell phone (left) and the second image (right) was scanned which is why the quality looks different. The drawing was done on Canson Mi-Tienes pastel paper using graphite for the darks and white pastels for the lights.

This was drawn using soft graphite and white pastel pencils. I started off with the line drawing. Shading does'nt start until the line drawing is as close to accurate as i can make it. Both light and dark tones were done at the same time. Traditionally, this is a no-no but...rules were made to be broken in Eddie World. lol. It's easier for me to balance the light and shadow working both tones at the same time. Normally i don't work this way but i used this method for this piece.
Click on the image for detail. The first image was taken with a cell phone and the second image was scanned which is why the resolution seems different. 'Til next time, peepz!
