Graphite Portrait Commission - Grandma Update 1

Grandmother Roughed In
I have not touched the granddaughter since the last update so she is still at the funny stage.  The grandmother has been roughed in to establish the darker values and now I will start refining her features to capture the resemblance. 

I always wonder what my clients think at this stage as everything looks so strange! I think watching the progress though makes you realise how the littlest details either make or break the capturing of a subject's character.

But the next update things should be starting to take shape :)  The grandmother's face looks very long right now as her jawline and hairline have not been refined so that is where I will start and then start adding in more of the wrinkles, or should I say character ;)) on her face.
