Learning Objectives:
• To look closely and critically at a work of art
• To use the techniques learnt in previous lessons
• To make appropriate changes to improve your work as it develops 
What you will need: 
Sketching paper (or your sketchbook), a soft pencil (preferably 2B or 4B), an eraser, a blending stump (or cotton bud), and a pencil sharpener.
Your task:
This is the last stage of your drawing, so you should be close to finishing. It is the part where you look at your work with fresh eyes. Look really closely at both your drawing and the photograph and play a little game of 'spot the difference'. It is by adding all of the small, subtle details, textures and gradients that you turn a good drawing into an excellent drawing. 
Below are some examples of the sorts of things you might look out for in your own work. However, every portrait is different, so some things will not be relevant to your work and you may spot other things not listed here.
Neatening-up and finishing off:
When you are done, use an eraser to remove any unwanted smudges around the outside of your portrait. Then you're done! 
Don't forget to upload a photo of your work and keep the original drawing safe until you can hand it in.
