Hi again Stanya! I have just been looking at this great picture again, also your fabulous German Shepherd. I want to ask you if you ever use a paper tortillon to blend lines when creating a continuous area of tone - say on the guy's sunglasses in this picture?
Thanks for the info. You mention a small paintbrush. Not sure what you would be doing with this - Using it 'dry' maybe blending graphite powder on the drawing? Or just blending the pencil strokes? Sorry for the '20 questions'!
Great info Stanya - thanks very much. An additional query if you don't mind. I find I have a problem with the dreaded graphite 'shine' on my portraits. Do you find layering gets round this problem. Or do you end up with the shine anyway and not worry about it - As that's the nature of Graphite.
