Pencil portrait || Side view || shading with cross hatching method

in GEMS2 months ago


Hello hivers i am here to share my new portrait drawing of a man. And smoke coming out of his mouth. Drawing smoke with pencil is hard because smoke is normally suppose to be white. Can't draw white with graphite pencils. Also this empty strokes are actually very good looking. I found this idea from some instagram art posts where the artists don't draw the smokes just leaves some empty spots.

This is another mini portrait But recently mini portraits are taking surprisingly longer time than the medium portraits. The shading strokes of these are so tiny and i have to be extra careful so i don't make weird mistakes. With medium or larger you can just be fast and shade everything. Which is also why i decided to do more medium sized portraits from now on.

Here are some process shots:
