Ok, this is something I did during my lunch break today (well not just my lunch break…but mostly.) I just got some new Conte A Paris drawing pencils and a new sketchbook with a bit more tooth on the paper a little while ago and hadn’t used them yet so this was my first run with them. It took me a little bit to get use to the new pencils but I think I’m catching on. The only thing I’m not a fan of with this is the hand on the face, I kinda made it look like a skeleton hand and it’s a little small. I used a reference photo from a model (who I think does pretty great work) I found online named Alexa Snakes. She has a blog you can check here out at here. The photo was from one of her photographer friends tumblr site, which you can jump to here.
