OK. Now it’s finished.
After looking at it from a distance for a day or so, I decided to try to try to balance the darks in the rest of the drawing to make the hand look less dark. Most of the additional ink was added in the drapery and the staff. Also, some tweaking was done in the areas away from his eyes to remove a few “bright” spots (highlights)… hopefully helping to direct the viewer’s eye toward his. 🙂
