Pencil portrait of a pretty girl with hair blown

Pencil portrait of a girl with hair blown. Done with a 2B mechanical pencil, kneaded eraser, and blending stump. Approximately 18 x 14 cm. Time take: abt 6 hrs.

For some reason, when I scanned in the drawing, the color looked very faded, so I used Photoshop to darken the tones to look like the original drawing. No other digital edits was done.

This is a wonderful sketch. Well drawn.

The best part is the hair on her left cheek - sharp and tender. :clap: well done.

At least to me, I don't know (and couldn't care less) of what other people think.

You did good in this one. :)
