This is really nice. I especially like the texture of the comb. The eye is perfect too. Thanks for sharing!

Hello, after watching Getting Sketchy, where Matt drew an eye and watching another YouTube site on drawing a realistic eye, I thought it about time I gave it a go. So here’s my attempt - graphite and white charcoal on strathmore tones gray paper.

I have finally started to get a bit of confidence in my drawing. I started trying to do a graphite portrait of my late dad nearly 10 years ago. I got stuck then as I wasn’t sure how to finish the clothing, or ensure that I had captured his innate kindness. So I started again, on grey-toned paper this time, with graphite and white charcoal. I think I still need to work on getting his hair done a bit better, but, overall, I’m really happy I’ve done this drawing and I feel happy enough that I can hang this in my lounge room.

Any feedback on the drawing would still be very much appreciated. It can still be improved :smiley:
