White paint would be a BAD idea.
Frogger, now that I have remembered this, your best bet is Workable Fixative. They come in aerosol spray cans.
Unfortunately, all the other suggestions that have been made would only replace the spots with a permanently awkward, equally noticible suface texture that would respond differently to your graphite/lead.

Well, can't argue with that logic.
I'm not disagreeing with Bio, I'm sure a workable fixative is Emma's best bet. I've never actually come across it before, and from what I've just read, I'm sure it'd be a good investment for me.
But from experience, I've used small amounts of white paint, and I've never had much of an issue with it. Nor has it made any noticeable difference to the look of the drawing.
Enoch was right.
I'm definitely not putting another layer of white paint or Tipp-ex over it. I wouldn't be able to shade over it, like Bio said. That's definitely a risk I'm not taking.
I tried drawing the whole thing again, but the eye didn't turn out so good, so I'm still stuck with the same drawing. I'm going to swoop some hair over the forehead mark to disguise it a bit. The nose one is getting to me the most. I tried stubbing it out. The best thing was rubbing it everywhere with tissue. I'm just going to have to make the skin darker than I normally would. You can still see it, but not too much.
I love you, Adam.
Yay is mine yah?
Woo woo woo woo.
Excellent. The marks aren't noticible.
From the looks of it, it worked in your favor. Your shading is more controlled and consistent this time.
Yaay. I couldn't find any cotton wool buds around the place for my last Ayumi drawing, so this one is actually blended. =)
Going to finish what you were working on before this thread died out any time soon, Bio?
I love you, Adam.
