6.1 Blending the Shirt
Now that we have the detail areas inked and the even value areas inked in the entire piece, it’s time to start blending. Your portrait probably looks a bit graphic right now due to the jumps in value. We’re going to start on the shirt, as it’s the darkest and thus takes the least amount of thought, and work to push things to a 7 and 9 on the value scale. You’ll add another layer of dots and squiggles, and that’s it!
