Portraits are hard to do

This is my second attempt at capturing Egon Schiele’s likeness. I knew shortly after starting that it would not be like him but I continued anyway practising my pencil shading. You may notice that my pencil technique changed a little if you compare the top of the illustration with the bottom. That’s because I watched a YouTube demonstration video on how to shade half way through the portrait (see below).

Egon Schiele – not!
