Portraits… working on a weakness

Just experimenting with different techniques for rendering fabric and shading facial features. With this piece I decided to jump back into stippling. After losing some patience with a .05 diameter Micron pen, I jumped to a larger size and realized that it was probably a mistake for the canvas size I was working with. More detail requires more patience and this is an excellent example and learning experience.
