This is a different technique for me as I used mainly a 4B and a 6B pencil for this drawing. I tend to stick to the H series which give greater detail but take much longer to complete. I enjoyed the high contrast values the B's provided and I will do some more pics with these.
4B, 6B Staedtler pencils and an HB mechanical pencil for some details. 11 x 14 in bristol plate.
Thanks for viewing, comments are appreciated!
Beautifully done ! I really like this portrait ...
I agree with you on the fact that the B pencils make great high contrast.
