CarbOthello – Portrait


Model is Yael Shelbia. 

CarbOthello on newsprint. 

Experimenting with new pencils and techniques.  This was just several layers of pencil with some minor kneaded and mono eraser work.  I’d like to learn more about how to add value without it looking so generic (I know the CarbOthello doesn’t help much because of it’s pastel qualities).  It takes a lot of confidence to build values and I’m afraid if I go in with some stylized calligraphy, I’ll ruin the piece.  

Thank you!
