I found this one really hard, and had to stop myself from fiddling too much x) tips anyone? :)

what you can do is trace the template (main feature lines) onto tracing paper. That way you can lay it over the drawing to check that your lines haven't moved while shading O0

I agree with Latti.... this one is really hard!!!

I have started, but not finished, and struggle to see the tonal changes throught the image. Nolan is right (once again!!) saying that when shading it looks like she has a dirty face!!

I still need to darken the right hand side (shadow of the hair) as it needs to be quite a it darker than the left.

...but the face looks too round to me - even though I used the tracing technique. Is this because I haven't added the hair (which may appear to elongate the face when a 'border' is added)?

your shadings and everything are fine, all you need to do now is "polish" the uneven shadings to smooth the pencil marks. You are very close to a beautifully smooth skin with good contrasts :clap: :clap: :clap:

Use a pencil a shade or two lighter to "polish" the imperfections away. I do show how to do it in one of the portrait classes, but I just don't recall which one

 :thankyou:
Thanks... I did see the polishing technique... it seems illogical to 'add more graphite' to smooth... I keep thinking it will make it darker... but using a lighter pencil would stop that.

Will try to add more this evening...

Adding the neck starts to give it depth... also it seems to make the face look longer (less round)
...and the eyes make her look less spooky!!

Rachel found this one a bit difficult because she's used to doing things her way (so she tells me)!

good shadings :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

what you want to look out for is the darker tonal value on the underside of the nose and the lighter teeth O0

I managed to crease the paper so it was close to waste basket,  but it was some hours work so I tried to use my iron on it and  here  it is,
Practice makes you better
