Great progress Kenny. Those eyes are really hypnotic! I think I'd have to cover them while I was working on the rest of his face!!!

Probably let it sit a bit before I decide what ugly parts to screw up. :o :D

End of First Pass at 24.5 hours. Not really happy with the shirt (may consider blending some carbon/9xxb in) or not as I let it sit and contemplate what needs to be adjusted/fixed/corrected before the SPRAY!!!

put another layer (graphite) on the shirt and adjusted a few details here and there. Will still wait a bit before spraying in case of additional changes.

Great finish Ken! Like your last drawing, those deep deep darks at the bottom of your composition work like magic to anchor your drawing and to bring all of the attention on the face. The hair is thick and shiny too, but this one is all about the eyes in my opinion. They're undeniably the focus here!!
