Unfinished Girl

by Grant
(Ahlden, Germany)

This is my second portrait that I have drawn and in comparison to my first one entitled Tatjana I am very happy.

I used a selection of graphite pencils and drew this on a sheet of sketch paper 190g/sm which measured 148mm x 210mm.(about half the size of an A4 sheet of paper). Taken from an advert in the TV guide.

Hi Grant:
Nice strong, attractive portrait.Very striking!
Great shading...has me wishing I could see the rest of her.Although the fact that I can only see half of her is very attention getting :o)

hi grant,

your work --unfinished girl-- is different but very nice. i particularly like the work done on the ear and the lips. maybe you could look at the graphite portraits done by some other artists to get an idea of how the nostril is done. i used to make the same mistake until someone told to observe nostril very well in photos to understand. maybe it is a good idea not the define the lines of the nostril so boldly--though i am no authority on this subject. but great work and keep at it.
