I have been practicing more often with pen. My goal is to reach the best I could and leave nothing behind.
In this drawing, I used harmonious strokes (cross hatching) to get my desired forms. I applied red pen on his left eye.
When I started practicing art newly, my Mentor used to tell me to add more shade (tones) to my works but I was just scared that more of that could spoil my work. So most of my early works were done with light shades and the impression wasn't that much perceived although the resemblance was there.
However, as I progressed in my journey, I realized that these shades are what bring out the beauty to works. It doesn't matter how long it will take you. What really matters is your result.
I am still learning though. I will keep practicing till I get to the level I have been dreaming to be.
