 :thankyou: Bill, Lynne, Zayn, Lisa & Nolan.
I'm still searching & experimenting to learn about your polishing technique Nolan, is it using the Cotton Bud?

no, what you do is use a lighter / harder pencil and carefully go back over the areas of imperfection in tonal value.
I think I will make a Youtube video on portrait drawing tips next week and included that one so you can see how I do it O0

Thanks Nolan, I went back over the portrait as you have suggested with lighter/harder pencils - 3H-5H & it certainly helped me see a better form take place, but I'm not sure I used the correct tone in areas. I"ve posted an update pic in the Encourager section - Portrait
