I hope you had a great weekend!
I applied the notes you gave me last week and continued on with the portrait of Gus. I tried to do a single shape background/gradation, but it grew and grew, and so it’s not so much a shape anymore.
Not sure if I went a little overboard with the white charcoal as well.
Your critique is much appreciated for what I still need to work on, and any help you can give so I can finish it up and present it to Gus’s owner.
Thank you in advance for your time!
