Love is all you knead
It’s time now to give the drawing some love and added pop. I’m using a kneaded eraser here to pull out some highlights. Kneaded erasers are terrific because you can shape them like putty, hence they’re sometimes sold as Putty Erasers. Using the kneaded eraser also gives me the chance to carve into the neck and face to achieve the exotic look I want. At this stage the face no longer resembles the original European life model at all.
