Click to enlarge. Well, it's been quite a while since I posted....I know! I think I'm finished unless there are requested changes. I've had several delays to this project due to my daughter's surgery and other family matters. I'm happy to finally have this done! Once it's approved, I will post the scanned version.

Since the face is heavily shadowed on the right side of the face, it takes many layers and many more to come. Darkening with graphite is a time consuming process...unlike charcoal. I think it's really starting to take form. I'll continue to make corrections as I see them. The hairline looks high at this point, and will be brought down. My focus was to get the shadowing on the forehead correct.

I decided to post several update pictures instead of one. You can see the progression as more layers are added. The last picture shows some further details of the eyes. I have not included lashes at this point. I need to further deepen the shadowing on the right side.
