I used General white, 2B, HB and Stabilo 8008. I am pleased that my drawing has a semblance of the Mask. I wanted a plaster cast to use. Robert thank you for your class. How do you know how far to take the values. I think I can add more contrast. White on white has its own challenges. I used a 6500 kelvin light to create shadows.

Based on the photos of both the mask and the drawing, I'd say that you have done a fine job thus far. You could push the light values brighter on the UP planes on (our) right hand side of the face. Both the forehead, and front plane of face would be getting more light. Also, push the planes on the left side of the face a bit darker, to make them recede. Remember, you are not copying. You are translating and simplifying. Good job!
