Jyri's WIP 3

An update on Jyri's portrait. I am working the opposite of how I usually work so I am finding this portrait very interesting...and a little scary ;-) I am working dark to light so I have added in the darks as dark as I think they need to be but will likely have to darken near the end as I never go as dark as I should. It is kinda fun this way as working with the negatives it feels more like sculpting than drawing :) I am not happy with the likeness so far but I am hoping that once I get more completed the likeness will magically 'appear'...sometimes this happens ;) The background I will leave to the end which will be as black as I can get it without creating too much of a shine from the graphite.
