Smiling Young Girl (Child) with Curly Hair

My first portrait of a real person. This is a young girl (a child nearly 4 years old) with insanely curly hair, some of which falls in ringlets. She's leaning across a table in a way that looks like she's taking a selfie! Her eyes are mostly grey/blue-grey except for her right eye which has a patch of brown in it.

This one was challenging for various reasons - not least the hair! But she also has really pale skin, except for the cheeks which are usually coloured pinky-brown. I decided not to do a background so as not to distract from the girl in the picture. But the table was put in as it gives context to her position, leaning on her left arm with only her wrist showing.

Title: Bear Curls (I am not explaining this title here)
Media: artist's paper, coloured pencils, crayons, drawing pencils
Time Estimate: about 40 hours, I think.
