Wedding Portrait - WIP

I thought I would post a portrait that I am currently working on. It is a wedding portait that I am giving as a gift to friends of mine.

To create an outline of the drawing I use a grid printed onto tracing paper. I then print the same grid onto my reference photo and use an F pencil to draw my outline. Once the outline is complete I transfer it to my drawing surface using graphite paper.

I am starting to fill in the skin tones and hair alternating with 2B, 4B and F graphite working from left to right to avoid smuding.
