Albert Einstein by jjkiefer Albert Einstein by jjkiefer
Portrait of Albert Einstein
12" x 16" Graphite (Mechanical Pencils) on Canson Plate/Smooth Bristol Paper

I just returned from picking up my work from my first drawing exhibit at a local art gallery and discovered I no longer am the owner of this drawing.  Pretty cool.  Cheers!

Sorry it took so long to respond.  Been working 60 hour weeks so don't have a lot of time for DA these days.  The best way to describe how to draw fine white lines is you have to do negative drawing.  By that, I mean you start out with a wide line and then draw around it to make it thin.  I also use a razor blade to cut the eraser to get a sharp edge on it.  Here is a link to a tutprial I wrote.  Disregard the misspelled words in it.  I was in a hurry when I wrote it.  Albert Einstein Hair Tutorial by jjkiefer
