lastly i finished the top of his head and hair in the same manner as the rest . i painted in some wisps of hair in front of his face to define the edge a little more and put in some crevice darks around the nose, nostrils, mouth, and eyes.
that's about it for this small sketch. i am really pretty happy, and not a little surprised, that it turned out as well as it did. now i wish i had thought out the colors a little better in the beginning. i really was just going for the correct values. at least this gives me the confidence to paint another a little bigger and better in the near future.
