From my pencil/graphite illustration series of James Bond. Daniel Craig from "Skyfall"
Wow...can't even figure out how you did the hair and upper face wrinkles on this one. At first I got the impression that the area around his mouth was a bit wide, but it turns out to work in representing him when I stepped back to look at the composite effect.
l love James Bond ^^ l love Daniel Craig.
Erasers and precise control of the level of graphite being added is key in creating the type of effect you are asking about. It's not unusual for me to apply, erase, apply, erase and apply again in this type of portrait to get the right blend or gradient desired. Thanks for the comment!!!
Awesome indeed.
