Hello friends, today I want to participate in this artistic activity that the friend brings us, @wherein and "world of xpilar", I present a portrait where he uses my niece "Emilys" as a model, I do it in the technique of graphite pencil and colors, on a sepia-colored cardboard paper and with measures of 30 cm by 24 cm, if you want to join this activity, here is the address.
I make the sketch with graphite pencil strokes (Hb-2) using the technique of crosses, I give the first lines and calculate the size and place of the features of the face .
I use the graphite pencil (B6) to give darker tones, I highlight the features that identify Emilys, which are her beautiful and expressive eyes, I give the required shadows in the appropriate sectors to have a natural focus on light and shadow.
In this step I give color to the elements that "Emilys" has, his cap and his striped sweater, this colorful addition will give the portrait that art style of artistic sketches, for the last phase I give it certain lights with the pointed erasures , to give lights.
