Ok, so it's not finished yet. :o

Thought I should share my progress so far.
Another couple of layers needed on the face, then starting on the hair, then pillow.

Was going to be a quick sketch, just to test my ability to draw without a grid, but honestly feel I am incapable of doing a quick sketch. As usual my compulsion for detail has taken over.

Anyway, my back pain has improved greatly, and will endeavour to complete this...soon. :)

Sorry about the quality, taken with my camera-phone, will scan final piece.

Just a thought, should we put our WIP in sketch book section? Or reserve that just for preliminary work?

WOW, WOW, WOW -- amazing!

As for where to put WIP -- I don't know -- what ever everyone else wants will work for me.

So glad your back is improving.

The model is a random from DA.

Freehand but using a divider, with the tear-duct as a reference point, to check measurements/proportions periodically. Lots of erasing, but got an accurate outline in the end.
Same result as using a grid, but much more time and effort.

Physiotherapy, worked a treat.
Thanks D. :)

Yeah.. this is the method I have been working with .. either with the pencil, divider, or ruler.. it seems to work well!

Kinda funny, while I have heard of using a grid (do not prefer that method personally), I never heard of a "divider" before, on my latest project, I have found it easier to place features using my pencil as a guide. I will use a divider on my next project though, I have no doubt it will help.
