This also received a strong thumbs up from the crit group, even though I used the “dots” for eyes. I had enjoyed doing that, but a few people felt it limited my range of facial expressions. The hand drawn pencil textures and patterns were similar to how I built the polar bear image, so seem to be somewhat of a style maker for me. I have folders of digital texture files that I make in my spare time, and I enjoy watching British period dramas while doodling new pencil motifs. These can be easily dropped over any pencil drawing using Photoshop.
