Jean Harlow - WIP by Stanbos Jean Harlow - WIP by Stanbos
WIP of the portrait of Jean Harlow ([link]), bristol paper, 44,5 x 34,8 cm, graphite pencils (2H to 8B), nearly 34h.

The last picture is the scan, the others are photos (that's why their quality is worse...).

Thanks a lot ! I had to be patient, a lot, for this area x) I first give global contrasts, and then I add details and I use a kneaded eraser to accentuate contrasts...
