I tried to do things a bit different for this drawing. I attempted to focus more on the shading and shadows in the face instead of just linework. Looking back, I feel I probably should have painted this instead of trying to use colored pencil. Colored pencil isn't very forgiving and once it's there, it's hard to go back and do anything about it. I will probably go back and do something about the unfinished looking shirt at some point, but I wanted to get it finished. I did learn that colored pencil looks pretty cool over black gouache. I'll try using that in some future drawings.
