Tori 10-06-13---..Original Sinsuality

by Cristo
This is a pencil drawing on a canvas. I had meant to turn it into a painting. The expectation of painting it helped me with the matter of proportion.. I now just need to find out how best to smooth it out. Any suggestions welcome.
Medium: jet black pencil on stretched canvas
Size: 16"x20"
Price: work in progress

Yes it does help. Thank you!

Hi again Cristo, on the picture your pencil markings look great:))

Here is an idea that you could try on a less prominent area first to see if this could work for you. You could try blending by using a tortillian/drawing stump (you could make your own ... YouTube). If blending is an option it's not advisable to use fingers because the oils or damp on fingers can smudge your precious pencil work and in case erasing is required may proof difficult.
Perhaps this could be useful.

It was a wonderful and intimate few hours. I really believe that one must FEEL as well as think to be able to draw Tori with any amount of success. ..I was hoping to learn what I can use to make the pencil markings less rough. This is a drawing on canvas. I want to make it look more like a painting.

Cristo, you drew my favourite female artist most beautifully!!
(not sure what you mean: what do you need to "smooth out"?)
