A Drawing A Day 1195

Progress Shot 09

In this state I am beginning to push the values, finding the darkest darks and lightest lights. With this I go in stages. I make the darkest darks only as dark as I bear to conceive comparing them to the current value map of the image. Then I adjust the rest of the map to be in sync with these darkest darks. Only to discover they are not dark enough, Then I do another pass of the same process, until I am satisfied and don’t want to go any darker.
