Great update Ken. The skin tone, complete with wrinkles and age spots, looks really good!

Couple more hours and first pass on face is done.....many parts I'm not happy with yet, but will work/rework maybe now, maybe later (second pass). It's close though and the details can be adjusted.

I pushed hard today. A full day drawing ... spread out...about 7 more hours. Finished first pass. Probably lots to fix/adjust. Going to take a fresh look at it tomorrow (and a better pic....this is a phone pic). About 35 hours.

Coming along very nicely, Kenny what grade pencil do you use for the face or skin. Also according to Webster "covfefe" is the act of smudging...so be careful of to much covfefe!!

Interesting you should ask.... on this drawing....on this paper... I've found I'm mostly using 3 pencils - 2H, HB, and 2B most of the face, particularly the forehead, nose/lighter areas is all 2H....HB for the dark wrinkles...

as far as covfefe.... :D - https://www.fecundity.com/pmagnus/humpty.html

Here's a 'real' pic as it is at the end of the first pass. Maybe a bit better pic than the one from last night.

Boy, those rich blacks make all the difference! Love the way the dark sweater anchors the portrait and the way you're using such a full rich range of values.
