This is a portrait of a man that I don’t know by name but used as my reference picture. I chose him as a reference because the portrait photo had a lot of value that I could perfectly use for shading and highlights. I did this piece in my freetime to practice my skills to shade and highlight and blend with a blending stump. First I drew an outlining and some important face parts and started shading with a 6B graphite pencil and did the highlights with a kneaded eraser. I’m not sure what people should take after seeing it but it’s probably good to self reflect what they would do the same or what they would’ve done differently.
