Portrait of Baby Mary Rose - 6 - Pencil Drawing

Portrait of Baby Mary Rose – Stage 6

Quite a big jump from the previous stage. Here, I’ve done most of the “underpainting” for the fabric she’s sitting on. Plus, her legs are almost finished — just a little more fine-tuning to be done in those areas.

DETAIL 1 – THE CHANGES:

  • I have done some more work on her hair. The part I haven’t done yet is quite “messy” so I left that for later
  • Finished drawing the other ear (viewer’s right)
  • Viewer’s right eyebrow is now in place

I left the head area for a while and continued working on the arm down…

DETAIL 2
Finally finished her hand so I am posting a close-up of that area as well.

The fabric underneath her fingers is showing the start of the furry texture. I practiced on how to create believable and realistic fur before I even started the portrait. I tried a few different ways and tools but decided on using a stick eraser. I hope it does the effect I am trying to achieve.

Some more update on her hair. Also, more work on the nose, mouth and eye (viewer’s right). I really like how her cute little nose and mouth are coming along ;) .

Coffee and Table Napkin - 4 - Pencil Drawing

Coffee and Table Napkin – Stage 4

Darkened the inside of the cup especially the left side careful not to make the highlights as dark as the rest. I also began putting in the black coffee. The left side was adjusted because it was a bit uneven with the right. At this point, I also started laying graphite powder on the table napkin and its reflection on the cup.
