Portrait .. after a pause of almost a year

Wentworth Miller from Prison Break. It took me a long time to manage making the left side darker and I pushed too hard the pencil 'cause it became somehow metallic. And the eyes look strange to me :? Anyway, I hope it resembles at least a little :lol: Image

Re: Portrait .. after a pause of almost a year

Shading is pretty good, if you use the grid technique as zac97 suggested the proportions will be alot better too!
Try it, you will like :)

Try gridding. Read the tutoral section on this site to learn more.

Re: Portrait .. after a pause of almost a year

Ok, I'll take a look at the tutorials from here because I'm quite confused about what do you actually mean by "gridding", guys. :oops: but I guess I figured out:D

Re: Portrait .. after a pause of almost a year

Proportions are a bit off
and you could use a bit of finer shading.
See my drawings and digital paintings now!!!

Re: Portrait .. after a pause of almost a year

Gridding is just the process of dividing the source drawing into squares and redraw it onto your paper (which you also divide in the same squares), afterwards you erase the grid and continue.

It resembles him pretty well, but I can see that with a little more time on your shading and using the grid technique even you will be suprised how much better it will look ;)

Re: Portrait .. after a pause of almost a year

Yea I am convinced it would look much better, but I guess my mistake is that when I start a drawing I barely can leave it and finish it another day or smth like that. Maybe I have a problem with this :lol: but from now on, I'll make pauses and I'll try to focus carefully on each part of a portrait. Thanks b03tz for the explanation, I found about it on Google too :D and thanks Plissken too, I'll follow your advice :)
