180 hours - Portrait update
I'm about 180 hours in to this pencil portrait. I have spent a lot of time in the past month adjusting the darkness of the apron in order to give the shadows the intensity that they need.
Since the last update, I have also made an attempt at the hair, which is phenomenally intricate. It's going to take a long time to get right!
I have been using a 5B to make the darkest shadows as black as possible.
