It’s a little embarrassing to post this portrait at this early stage, because it looks kind of creepy as just an outline.  But I’m hoping it will be fun to see it progress from here to completion.  I’m planning to fill in the facial details as I practice them in my drawing class: the eyes, then the nose, the mouth and ears.  Not sure how I’m going to do the denim jacket, but hopefully I’ll figure it out somehow.

I chose this brownish paper because I’m hoping that when it’s done it will look sepia, to create an old-fashioned effect. Stay tuned.
