  • Then build up the shadow in layers using a soft pencil (2B, 4B) without pushing too hard
  • See the section called “Building up Shadows” in our guide on “How to Shade Your Portrait” for help.
  • Notice how the patterns on his headband have crisp outlines
  • Use a sharp hard pencil to create the outlines, then fill them in the dark areas with a softer pencil (2B, 4B)
  • To make the portrait look as realistic as possible, make sure your pencil marks follow the same direction as the contours of his face
  • Use a soft pencil (2B, 4B) for light strokes to realistically recreate the light grey pattern on Eminem’s hood.
