Her photograhpy is very good! Please go check her out! :)

I used a 0.7 mechanical pencil.
It took me around 3 hours to finish.

really really cool composion on this! :D

I love how you made the cloth slightly brighter than her face. adds a nice element.

the shading on her face could be a little more defined - when toning is too smooth it tends to blend together too much and lose definition.

great job! :w00t:

Wow, thank you very much for the detailed feedback. I really appreciate that! :D
I totally agree with you on the blending. I need to get better utensils that just a mechanical pencil, lol.
I think it would make a big difference with the shading and definition.

no problem :D

I really don't think you need to change your technique all that much, you already have a fantastic drawing style! and personally, I love mechanical pencils. :heart: never have to sharpen them, and they always make really fine, dark lines when you need them. *such a nerd*

however, a nice set of graphites is always handy ;) good luck!

Thank you so much! :D
It's nice to know im not the only one out there who loves mechanical pencils, lol. They are so convenient and easy to use.
And hey, being a nerd isnt a bad thing. Dorks and nerds have more fun anyway, lol. :D

There's nothing wrong with the face, the cloth just looks more finished. Or has a greater contrast, because the stripes are so black. The detail still looks great, like the eyelashes. :)
