Kevin Hewitt fishing portrait.

This is the latest photograph for a fishing portrait.

The photograph croped and the background removed, the image is then turned into greyscale to be printed to use as the reference picture.

the first rendering showing the completed outline and first layer of pencil on the face and shirt.
Around 4 hours work

Second rendering showing the second layer added to the face and shirt and also a start on the fish, working from left to right.

Third rendering, the next stage will be to add more detail to the scales adding more dark to make them stand out a little more.
More blending may be required to make the white highlights stand out, the highlights are the most difficult to get right.
