I hope, I can draw a cute Pic like you of my cousins daughter. But I haven't got a good photo yet: she is just two weeks old. It shall be a present.

Thank you, having a very happy baby helps :) The hardest part was blending the shadows as the card stock was not very forgiving.

Incredible.

How do you get every single small detail in the varying skin tones?

AlexanderLevett Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
This was based on my own photo and I have an eye for every variation in tone and can just translate what I see.

Thank you for commenting, I really appreciate it and if the technical side of my work helps, The best tool for smoothing the tones is the blending stick or tortillion. I usually start adding the tones with a 4h and blend this first layer. I will then repeat this for each grade of pencil, usually 2b,HB,2b,4b and 9b. By layering like this it really helps creat so many subtle grades.

Haha, thought as much, the last thing I wanted to be was rude hence me getting back to you. One other thing, the quality of the pencils and the paper can help too. I use strathmore 300 or 400 card with the smooth finish and faber castel pencils. Also a faber castel precision eraser is very useful to add highlights.

I thought I replied to this.. I guess not. If you get two replies, I am sorry.

But thank you! I will definitely try out faber castel products.
