Graphite Memorial Portrait Commission - Rough Sketch of Rocky

Rough Sketch of Rocky
This is a rough sketch of Rocky the third subject in this portrait.  His jawline did not pick up well in the scan so once transferred to the good paper things will be easier to see.  I will post another update of the three of them together which will again be the rough sketch but refined further.

When transferring the rough sketch to the good paper so much of the details are lost and "off" so it always still needs to be refined again on the good paper before proceeding.  It seems like a waste of time and I always want to just get on with it but the time spent now pays off later so I don't have to spend time making fixes on the good paper as much which can damage the paper and lose the freshness in the final piece.
