I'm still trying to figure out how to put "soul" into my pencil drawings, especially portraits...There's usually something so impersonal about my graphite portraits. So I guess I tried something rougher. Although, I'm not sure if it just comes across as lazy?
I was going to paint on top of this, but I accidentally got too into the pencil shading, haha. So I may just leave it as it is.

I've been listening to too much of Regina Spektor recently. I really, really, really wanted to do her justice here, but...I dunno.
I just used a normal mechanical pencil (HB) here.
