I gave up on a few of the ideas I had before. Mostly the reference photos I wanted to get just didn't pan out. I'm working on a new drawing now. I found a photo from a few months ago that I have just been in love with. The photo does not have ideal lighting, but I think it will a challenge to see if I can exaggerate the shadows to make the faces in the portrait not look so washed out. Right now I'm working on an eye and have once again lost my kneaded eraser. I'm happy with everything about the eye but the pupil. This drawing is in pencil but is also the same size as the last drawing. It's not one of my larger pieces but I want to focus on detail, and I think I'll be doing more with the background this time.
