soft edges



One of my friends was nice enough to model for me, so I thought I'd post a recent drawing. It was done with a .3 HB mechanical pencil. Someone once told me that my drawings had too many hard edges so I've tried to soften it up a little over the years - well, I assume that's what the guy meant. He said they looked like hermetically sealed mayonnaise. I didn't really understand it either, but it's one of the funniest comments I've ever recieved.

Beautiful portrait. It looks very accurate, even though I don't know the model. Lots of life in it.

If that's mayonnaise - could you pass the jar please. I agree, it is a beautiful portrait. Inspiring.
