Step by Step
As with all my pencil drawings I start off with a detailed line drawing. I rub a graphite pencil on the back of my reference image and then draw over the top, leaving a line drawing on my drawing surface. You can see clearly in this photo my line drawing and were I have started to draw in the nose and eye sockets. I have also started to rough in other areas.
