Mission Accomplished! Still struggling with slideshows and iPhoto...the infamous flash workaround so these will show up on iPads. This is also the last portrait I did before figuring out how much fiddling I was doing to get the drawing right. Hate to be adjusting the tilt of an eye when you are almost ready to declare victory!
For me, the grisaille underpainting gives me a much better foundation for color. Now to figure out a way to nail the facial tones sooner :)
