The reference image printed a little dark but I went with it anyway using only an HB pencil. I then proceeded to abuse both the tooth of the paper and my eraser to get the shapes and shadows. I find it nearly impossible to keep a light touch and an accurate continuous line. So…I’m working on it. I see you clearly building up tone little by little and know that I need to do more of that. Hopefully it comes with practice. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
