Thanks, it was the first time I did 'layers' in a drawing. It makes a difference x

What is layers if you don't mind me asking.

Well, when in start drawing a picture and I'm doing shading,I start with a 4H on the lightest areas and gently build up as far as I can go with that pencil without wrecking the tooth of the paper. If I need to go darker, I then go on top of that with a HB, and so on until I get the shade or darkness I need. So eventually you have layers of grades of pencil. Works best on rich skin tones or if the skin is going to be the main focus of the picture x

By golly that IS the giant brain himself! Great job Bev! I like to watch him on old documentaries when I can find them. It's fun to listen to a genius talk--even if I understand only 1/3 of what he says.I think I've fainted.
