I used a graphite pencil for the drawing and shading on my 11×14 Bristol Paper. I put focus on the left side of my face being lighter than the right, and did curvy motions for the strands of hair. A difficulty I encountered was the symmetry in the lips, as well as the length of the face, but I learned to go along with what I had and improvise. I was not quite sure how to start this piece, but once I did I learned that it would get easier from then on.
