Some grays I used to separate backgrounds for the subject model. My graphite drawings are varied in different kinds of strokes to thick and thin lines, cross hatching and blended tones, some of my lines drawing starts with grade 2B and increase the darkest to 8B.

This specialised art portrait sketch is designed with the "art nouveau borders", a style and technique by the famous artist Alphonse Mucha. The designs are created to add some decorative accents of rose vine designs. The decorative borders are classic, intricate and decorated.

A vignette, in graphic design, is a unique form for a frame to an image, either illustration or photograph. Rather than the image edges being rectilinear, it is overlaid with decorative artwork featuring a unique outline. Originally a vignette was a design of vine-leaves and tendrils.
