Day 1: Outline and face.
2B, H, and 2H Staedtler pencils.
Day 2: Added some depth and detail.
Incorporated 6B, 4B, and 4H.
Day 3: Final portrait. Blending, background, finishing touches.
Also on my deviantart.
Overall, the project took around 10 hours.
Now I can't even imagine doing any future drawings without this set of pencils. They're amazing.
