Lead Free Portraiture

Taking my lead-free journey one step further, with portraiture, I used a photographic reference and an Edding 1800 profipen 0.1 to sketch this face.

I was expecting a complete mess for my first attempt but there are aspects of this I am really pleased with.

Very nice! The nose is a little askew.... other than that.. it works. Good for you for getting out of your comfort zone.

Thankyou anonymous, shame you didn't leave your name.
Yes, I've always found the nose the most complicated part of the face.

Awesome job, Anita. THe nose is a little wonky, not much, just a tad. But, those eyes are incredible! Absolutely wonderful!

Thanx Sherie.
Yep, noses are a challenge for me. I did consider correcting with white gel pen and then decided against it, if I am going to correct then I may aswell use a pencil and a rubber!
My errors will hopefully prove as useful tools as I progress. ;)
