Graphite (H) pencil on sketchbook
Source: a graphite portrait by Giovanni Civardi's "Portraits with Character"
Drawn on August 16th
I thought it may be a good idea to draw from other artists' portraits rather than photos, from time to time, to learn how they solve various problems (shading, linework, texture, hair, etc).
In particular it's useful for me to see how other people solve hair. And find out that one can get so much with so little.
