So I really tried to give this a lot more in terms of shading and highlighting goes. I let my darker shades get DARK and I left some areas fairly light in spite of what I started with and what I really wanted to do.
I’m telling you I really pushed myself out of my comfort zone when I picked up my compressed soft charcoal and started in on some of the darker areas and background. Exactly what a lot of the feedback I’ve been getting is telling me I need to employ more of.
Hopefully I am headed in the right direction, I welcome any feedback. 🙂
