Love the beard and the detail in the shirt! Your blending is so smooth, mine always look grainy. Should I use softer graphite leads and just use pressure control to create lighter tones? I usually use a 2B graphite and use a 6B charcoal.
Thanks, yes i rarely go below a 3B which makes blending so much easier to manipulate. multiple layering helps and i use a very light touch only adding pressure for texture or darkness. i never or rarely use pressure for lighter tones.
