Punk Rocker update
Just a small update on the portrait. I haven't had much time to draw tonight. People, packing paintings and the telephone keep me away.
I've started putting down some layers for the hair and building the fine hairs on the shaved section of the head. I've noticed that my drawing is off here. The ear is too far back, making the head elongated. But as this isn't a commission and just something for fun, I'm letting it slide for now.
I'm finding the shade of paper very difficult to capture. Its a blue that looks almost greenish under artificial light. This is more what it looks like in the current lighting, but daylight give a much bluer cast to the paper.
