Value Ratios Light – Sheila


Hi Matt,

This was a really great exercise for me! I already see that the eye is too small and I’m sure there are other mistakes as well.

How is my shading? I really tried to keep the light separate from the dark, but still not entirely sure how that works with gradients. 

Also, I cheated with the background and used graphite powder, because I just got to the point where I couldn’t do any more.: )

I used a 2b pencil for 99%, but them pulled out a 2h for some of the very lightest areas, because the 2b kept showing  dark “grains” of graphite in unwanted places.

Looking forward to the critique and the class on Tues.!
