Excellent drawing. Love the different textures. Love the earrings. The contrast is great.

Is all of this graphite? Those dark values are so great and have very little shine for graphite. I use charcoal for my deepest shadows, but I'm always interested in other people's techniques. I particularly love the way you've captured that shiny effect of the hair. Absolutely perfect.

This is all graphite. The drawing was scanned rather than photographed which seems to eliminate any graphite shine.

It scanned beautifully! The range of values you got with that graphite is amazing.

The hair is beautifully rendered, and the bright white earring makes an excellent focal point.
