Step 1

The first lines in pencil You need them for guidelines to have the right proportions.


Step 2

The eyes, The most important part in a drawing. The eyes tells everybody how and who the person is. I do it this time with small dots because I decided to make the drawing different from others


Step 4

After the eyes we make the shades around these eyes. Look for the darker parts and place the points more against each other. The light parts you can do with a almost dry pen. Mostly with a full pen with ink I start with the dark parts and as the pen is almost dry I go to the light parts


Step 5

Now I working on the rest of the face. Its important before you begin with nose and mouth. Later I began with the nose. Balance is important, balance between the light and dark parts.

Step 6

After the nose I finished first as nuch as possible the whole face.
So I get a total view of the dark and lighter parts.
Now I start with the mouth with some thin lines to get the lips 
first dark parts when I start later with my points



Step 7

Now the mouth is almost done. Now its time to spend more time to get the face in balance. With placing point everywher
