Art Critique – graphite and charcoal portrait – drawing tips w/ Lachri

Today’s submission comes from Fraser Poorman. Fraser has drawn this super realistic portrait using Graphite and charcoal. This portrait is absolutely amazing. I don’t have many tips for improving on this one so we’re really going to focus on why this portrait is as good as it is.

As always, I am in no way claiming that my tips are the only way to do things. These are just some pieces of advice that I would offer to my own students.
