Example text

The value viewer placed over this subject's forehead shows how very light her skin tones are in this area—I would only go as far as Value Group 2 here. Her neck, shadowed by her head and hair, is several shades darker. I would probably go as far as Value Group 4 here. If you think the area isolated here is hair, you're wrong! These are still skin tones, darkened by the cast shadow from her hair. On this spot, I could build right up to Value Group 6 without worrying about going too dark. Compare this spot with the dark forehead isolation at left.

A tiny, sharp point will naturally fit into far more valleys than a large, dull point. The more valleys your pencil can fit into, the smoother the coverage and the smoother and more even your work will appear. Don't be any more reluctant to sharpen your pencil than a wood artisan is to carve away wood. Yes, you are chewing up your pencils and “wasting” perfectly good pigment every time you sharpen. The alternative is to make your pencils last a really long time while creating rough, uneven drawings!

I keep it on top of my sharpener so I always know where it is. I show here a package of Handi-Tak reusable adhesive, which can be found at most office supply stores, but there are many different brands and they all work just fine. So what do I do with my blob? For starters, I put a tiny bit on each of the four corners of the back of my paper so my work will stay on my tilted drafting table. The effect is similar to Velcro in that you can easily lift the paper off your drawing surface and stick it back on.
