Panda 2 by L-Spiro Panda 2 by L-Spiro
Her name is Panda.
She is a 23-year-old woman that I know.

The reference was a photograph.
It was drawn with pencils ranging from 3B to 4H on 70lb paper.
No smudging was used at all in any part of the picture.

It scanned a bit light, so I used Photoshop only to adjust the brightness and contrast values to more closely match what is on my paper.

She is 23? I thought she's my age like 16 or something. I like the angelic air it gives off, and her face is very pretty. But i don't know why her head seems a little too skinny, maybe there should be a bit more hair on the side

Great expression. I like the overall lightness of this pic, and also how you made her eyes the darkest feature.

I like the expression. I just wish it were a tad bit darker so I could make out the features better. Prehaps using a darker pencil would help during your finishing touches? But the eyes are wide and expressive. Two things I love about them. :)

Wow! I love how you can make out all the small strands of hair. It would be awesome if you colorized it.

Thank you.
As for color, I have only colored one drawing in my life, with colored pencils, when I was 12, and the fact is I feel it was/is the single best drawing I have done in my life, (which I guess means I haven’t improved since I was 12 :|).
Unfortunately I was a total idiot and lost it at school.
Someone, somewhere has it.

I may color another in the future, but it won’t be a portrait.
