Fanny Price, cont.

Here's the second layer of pencil on Fanny Price.  For this layer, I switched to my 2B pencil for darker value contrast than in the first layer.  I didn't go over every single line in the knitted cape, but only here and there.  Mostly I worked on her eyes and face.

As always with pencil, I find it so useful to impress lines into the paper with a stylus - the lines, that is, that I want to remain white, like the whiskers. Inevitably, they get  darker as I work, most often from any water media that I add.  But still, it's a good way to begin with them.

I've had a bit of trouble with her expression.  Fanny is a very serious character, but she may look a bit too glum here!
