Everything about this drawing has been a major pain in the ass, for some reason every time I erased lines it smeared the pencil all the hell over and made a mess. So I sanded and re gessoed it several times. It was like I could not get the size of the face to be small enough and everything was just not working. Then one magical day it all clicked and I was able to make it small enough, make the nose look nose-like and make the lips look a little less like two obese worms.
This is where I’m up to now and while it’s not perfect it’s much better and doesn’t make me want to light it on fire and throw it out the window.
