This was a tough exercise – the hair and the chipped parts almost drove me crazy. But it helped me learn how to draw some more complicated details step by step.
I decided to try a background for this one (I’ve never put backgrounds in my drawings before) and I’m not really happy with it. Not sure how dark and light I can go. And it is hard for me to fill a big space like this in a solid way with smooth transitions.
By the way – my photo is not crooked, my background frame is just not a good rectangle.
