Conte Crayon Drawing Portrait

I was inspired by an youtube video ( to do this portrait drawing of Sydney. I had done a value study of her in oils so a drawing would had interested to see how far I had progress. In this video by Richard Morris, he begins with a line drawing of the features and even lines for the shadows. Then he “colored” in the values of the shadows. I thought this method is a “no-no” but the result in Richard Morris video is close to classical realism. Everything that I had read and heard was to established values first and then come back to indicate the features. So here I did a line drawing of Sydney’s features as well as established the shadows. And then almost like coloring within the lines shade in the shadows.
