Big D - WIP Update

Big D is transferred to his working surface and I've started blocking in the darker areas. 
 As always, I've started with the eye. 
Due to the quality of the photo, some artistic license is being used.
So far the drawing is being done with a 2B pencil.
Oh and this is a 9 x 12 piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth.
Because I start light, I've increased the contrast so you can see what's been done so far :)

Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by :)
