Oswald

Graphite on 5.5x8.5" paper. I thought that thiswork doesn't have a wide range of tones, especially towards the darker side. It could have been better if the hair, eyes and eyebrows, and the clothes was done in a darker tone. The face could pop out more forward if the base (the shirt) was darker. It would have been more dramatic if the whole drawing was rendered in a darker tone that even the lightest part is covered with a shade leaving the highlights the only part that is not rendered.
