Panda is her name.
She is a 23-year-old woman I know.

This is my first drawing in over 7 years, and was meant to get back into shape.
The quality of this drawing suffers from several aspects.
Firstly, it was just a practice piece to get me out of my 7-year rut (I am 24 and stopped drawing when I got out of high school at 17).
Secondly, the scanning was very light. I adjusted the brightness and contrast in Photoshop to account for this, however it didn’t work as well as I would have liked, and the result is just…off.

While comments are welcome, please keep in mind that this was just a warm-up piece.

As usual the best critic is always the creator although I don’t see any flaws since your talent escapes me as to your critique for the piece influences anyone to no end that anyone could become so good at drawing as you have become but still your too hard on yourself just trying to release any doubt that you’re the best most realistic artist I’ve ever seen

I love the way the eyes turned out
AC: maybe add more strands of hair instead of just blocking it
