Cheryl Cole Graphite Portrait WIP

Hi, this is my current WIP.

I'm struggling to get rid of the damn pencil grid! Any tips would be much appreciated. Also I've been blending with an ear bud but not getting a smooth blend, any advice?

Sorry if the pic is rubbish, I'm still trying to figure out how to get good pics up.

Thanks

Re: Cheryl Cole Graphite Portrait WIP

Looking great Dan,what is the paper?
Forget q-tips IMO they're rubbish,get yourself some decent Blending Stumps.Just bought some Royal & Langnickel pack of three from 83p-£1.49+
depending where you buy them
The Range,Rymans or your local Art Shop.
As for the Grid lines..after the horse has bolted i'm afraid,Don't press too hard when gridding.Try an old fashioned Rubber (cheap as anything but really good with certain papers)

Looking good Daniel, really good likeness. One thing to watch is the outline under her chin it's really dark, try to blend it in a bit.
Can't wait to see it finished.

Re: Cheryl Cole Graphite Portrait WIP

Great effort so far, shame about the grid lines.
To grid, use a 2H or 4H pencil, but dont press on the paper, just drag it across the paper so that the lines are very light and easily removed.
As for the the "Q-tip"-"cotton bud"-"ear-bud" for blending, I have come to the conclusion that our native products are different to our American/Canadian cousins.
I too, have trouble blending with them, I use a tortillion for small areas or cotton face pad for larger areas.
Hope this helps. :)

Re: Cheryl Cole Graphite Portrait WIP

Cotton balls disintegrate really quickly and tend to leave all kinds of little fibres all over your paper. If you're looking for something to smudge a larger area I recommend Kleenex.
