Graphite Portrait Commission
Father & Son Christmas Gift - Father Update #1

Father & Son Christmas Commission
Father Update #1
I decided to move onto the father at this point to bring his features up to the level of the baby son so that I can better judge the values between both of them.

The layers of graphite are being built up in both the hair and the father's face and his features have been laid in.  He looks a little feminine right now and the resemblance is not there yet as his features need to be refined further as the layers are built up.  The highlights are a little harsh in areas as they will be slowly blended into the darker areas to create shape and form.

The first few layers of his hair have been laid down and next I will start to actually add the defining shapes to his hair using more dark valuess and pulling out highlights.
