Emily WIP X-posted in Portraiture
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Everyone,

Here is the beginnings of my newest portrait, "Emily" 9 x 12 pencil on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. I'm sorry for the blurriness, I took this with my iPhone camera and thought I could get a good shot. I don't think its the camera, I just think I'm a bad photographer.

Anywho, slow and steady, continuing to add layers as I focus on ďobservingĒ light and shadow. Working on building up those tiny nuances that make us unique. As I make tiny tiny overlapping circular motions with my Pentel P205 mechanical pencil. Iím using 4H, 2H, H, HB, B, and 2B leads so far. Eventually as I work up the tone by bringing each lead to its absolute limit, Iíll be adding a 4B lead. I wonít need to go any darker because my plan is to get a deep dark just by adding layers and using various hand pressure. More to come soon!

-Ricky :)

To get a clear picture with your iPhone, when you have it pointed at whatever you want to take a photo of, tap the screen and it will automatically focus and adjust the light for you, if you tap on different parts of the screen you can change the focus and lighting. :)
