Alright, so here is a portrait I did of my mom from her wedding day. I have done some other drawings from these photos, as I find them very interesting.
The bottom sample of four was made because I do not have the proper lighting and photo equipment, and I was catching some glare from the graphite. The actual value of the drawing is somewhere in between these samples.
A pretty simple pose, it took me about 18 hours from start to finish. I used a conte stick, smeared it, and then used it again...smeared it again, and then used a mars lumagraph 8B to finish.
There will be more to come soon, once I have a larger scanner.
