I took a challenge doing this portrait. This may be a WIP since I did not do the multiple shadows and decided to have only one light source to make it simple, in my humble opinion. Work was done on a gray toned paper, 11×14, and using pencils, at times carbon pencils, and white chalk.
This work took many hours, and it was not easy but complicated and tedious, but I needed to learn the technique of straight vertical, horizontal, and obliques lines since I am more familiar with the grid method which is somewhat cumbersome. I like this method better since it is simple and uses the negative spaces.
Thank you for the critique,
