In February, 2009, I decided to attack the portraits. My teacher said to us: avoid drawing the portrait of a family member. It is difficult for a beginner.
So I decided to make a portrait of nobody. I took various elements, nose, mouth, which we have study in class. Here is what happens.
I used charcoal and charcoal pencil. it’s a format A4. I shaded off a lot the lines of charcoal with a paper stump.
The advantage to create a face is that we choose the lighting which we wish. There is no wrinkle either.
If you have questions, do not hesitate!
