Re: charcoal drawing wip critique/advice more then welcome
You are doing very well with this work. It seems to me the reference photo may be done a professional technique where you only see her face, and the rest is considered back ground. There are beautiful values that rendered this great photo. Therefore try to concentrate on the face as much as you can. For instance there is a significant contrast on her neck that is competing with her face so you have to make those contrasts less defined. Keep up your good work.
