I’ve Started a New Commissioned Portrait

I’ve just started on a new commissioned portrait and decided to document my progress for everyone to see. This graphite pencil portrait is an 8×10 with a simple headshot. I usually start with a simple line drawing over which I do a basic overall light blocking in. See my first round of progress below. This is about 2 hours into the portrait.

  1. Cool! For whatever reason, I didn’t realize you did commissioned portraits until your latest EDM post. Just checked out your work. I’m interested in seeing the different stages.
