    I used crayons and a pallet knife for mine...I start out light and keep adding darker and darker color then blending it with the pallet knife as I go..

    okay. i couldn't get the face right. so i cheated and set the settings on "use colors from tracing image".

    i might change some small things now (the ends of the hair). but thats how it looks like at the moment

    WIP Greyscaled Portrait

    I think your best bet is to do it in colour, export it as JPEG then use your photo edit program to change it to greyscale. This will give you lots of ideas on skin tones etc. I do the eyes first, if they are not right, the portrait will never be a good likeness. Good luck with your progress.
