Basic Drawing Skills – Harry Potter

This is the first of the portraits that we are doing in the Basic Drawing Skills class.  The big challenge in this picture is to do realistic hair.  Especially because there is such a lot going on in the hair.  Casually random.

I just wanted to identify all the drawing techniques I used in this drawing.

1) smudging
2) hatching
3) shading with little circles
4) negative space shading
5) lifting out with a kneadable eraser

If you double click the image you can see the full size image.
