Work in Progress....A Saint's shirt
Got a chance to work on this drawing tonight. I worked mostly on the black shirt. I put down a base layer of black lightly. Then drew in the highlight areas. Then I darkened the black areas. I used an eraser on the highlights to lighten up some of them. The hardest part is keeping it all clean. The black pencil tends to smear very easily. I cleaned it all up as best I could.
I have to decide what to do in the background. I don't like backgrounds very much. I would prefer to not do one...just leave it plain. I may just add some color, and fade it out.
I just have the lettering on the apron to go, and then the background. Should finish soon.
