Graphite Portrait Commission of Father

Rough Graphite Pencil Sketch - 18x24"
This is a rough sketch of a commission portrait I am working on in graphite pencil.  I have adjusted the image in photoshop so that the lines are visible as in real life the graphite pencil lines are very light and are barely visible on camera.  I like to keep the lines light enough so that they can be adjusted and refined as the portrait progresses and dark enough so I can just barely see them :) 

The paper looks warbley due to photoshop, the next update will look more natural as there will be more graphite on the paper so that I, ahem the camera, will have an easier time focusing :)
