Graphite pencil (2B, 8B, 12B)

How I Created This Piece:
The sketch is the most important part to me when starting a drawing because it is like the foundation of what you want to produce. I always take my time when sketching to have accurate proportions and avoid unnecessary mistakes.
After the sketch I started shading from the left eye (my favorite place to start a drawing) then progress to the left chick and to the other parts of the face. It is best to start shading from left-right or top-bottom to avoid cleaning details of the parts you had finished or staining your surface with charcoal dust. You will see from the progress shots below.
