WIP: Started January 25th--->

I wanted to share a new piece I started yesterday. This one is approximately 17 x 10 inches. This one will take a while so while there may be many updates the progress will be slow. This WIP will hopefully show more of the process than the other WIP I posted which already had the main features rendered by the time I scanned it and started the thread.

Subject: My wife again, sleeping...man she's lazy! LOL! I stay up all night drawing and she finds time to sleep! Anyway, she's laying on silk sheets/pillow and the goal of this piece is to bring out the smooth textures as well as a mood of tranquility...fingers crossed!
As you can tell my sight-lines are rendered lightly and are sketchy at best, these are JUST preliminary marks to get my bearings these will be changed slightly to make sure the anatomy is as correct as my eye can get it. Besides basic proportions and positioning I do really just hold my breath and go for it. Thanks for looking...

Oh this is wonderful Paul! I get to see this one from the start! I love the detail in her hand already. I can't wait to see how you render the silk. I need to know everything I can about drawing different types of material.

Thanks for the kind response Shesun4givn2! You are obviously a big fan of textures just like me. Half the fun is trying to figure out how to render them in a believable way. Using different hardnesses/softnesses of pencils can achieve many different textures. But I rely mainly on the tooth of the paper. I will try to draw as tightly and smoothly as possible on the silk and I let the tooth of the paper show through more on the skin. Although with this piece I will try to create a super-smooth image overall. I want her to appear as though she's floating on a cloud of silk- just very peaceful almost ethereal... Okay, now I'm getting cheesy! More later.......

Here's an update-
I started working the face a little bit. I am basically trying to lay down preliminary values and then I'll go over everything again to tighten and detail where necessary.
