This drawing is going surprisingly fast. I mean, I only started a week ago, and it's nearly half done (the photo is only a piece of the full size of the paper). Maybe I'm just a little too excited about this one!
The flanges need some more work, but the head is just about finished. I like taking photos of my work and looking at them on the computer because it helps me see things that I don't notice on the original. I can already tell that I'll need to darken the shadows right next to the beard, among other things. Altogether, I'm happy with how this is turning out. Stay posted for more progress!
