Hi Lucy.
I've finished only fewer portraits and I'm only learning drawing, so I can not be helpful regarding wrinkles, I'm sorry...
I'm practising drawing portraits, animals or even insects ;)
I believe the more challenges the better lessons learnt ;)
I'm writing to let you know that I like your portrait drawing and I'll try to follow it's progress ;)
I think this is looking very good at the beginning, so carry on Lucy and fingers crossed ;)

Hi Lucy,
I think what ever method you are using to shade the skin is making the texture too smooth. There are many different techniques for creating realistic skin texture and I suggest you explore them to find what works best for you. Personally, I use different blending tools and techniques to create different textures. Below are a few links to some videos where I explain some of these.

Hi Lucy, you welcome ;)

I've just checked your update...
It is looking very very good to me !!!
I'm willing to draw like this, so detailed and real like ...
It's big WOW to the skin tones and texture!
My wife is next to me, and we both were amazed ;)

I were waiting to finish my latest drawing to start my wife's portrait dear Lucy...
You actually made me sad ;)
I'm not ready with my skills yet, to please my wife with such detailed portrait...
Obviously I'll try my best as usually, but I know my limits ;)

Thank you for sharing your work in progress Lucy.
It's looking impressive !
Can't wait for next uploads ;)

Lucyarts,

First off, wow, great original photo to work from. Love the contrast and textures.

Your latest progress photo is coming along very well when compared to the first one. You are developing the textures of his skin very well, which is not easy! I have no advice to give, just encouragement and looking forward to seeing this progress. The original has some very stark contrasts of light and dark, which will require some dark textures in the creases. I, myself, hope to master the skills of these types of rough skin textures....but so far my attempts have been a bust!

Cheers!

As you know I'm not experienced member so I can't help pointing out some techniques tips, as to me everything is looking just as it should do!
To me it's very well looking portrait ;)
