you should put the story in its so sad, her eyes are piercingly beautiful poor girl... if you dont know it, she got trapped under dirty water for days and noone could get her out, everyone watched her die from septicaemia, having cameras and news in your face whilst you die, she had these very desperate eyes that lost all hope. she was only 15

Woowww! This is wonderful! The eyes are so intense! You captured this portrait without color.

This is my portrait of Afghan Girl: [link]
Yours is much better, though!

How were you able to get the intensity of her stare so accurate?

It's completely perfect... I admire you a lot. In this moment, I'm trying to finish a drawing of this picture too... I hope that it stays half as good as yours

This is absolutely stunning! It's so accurately drawn. Wow.
I was trying to do an eye study with this photo today but I couldn't get the eye right. Since the eyes are really the stars of this photo, I was wondering, do you have any tips? (since you captured their beauty so well here).

Again, fantastic work :o

amazing that somebody can draw this, in this way.. so talented! What jetain said.. you can't stop staring at her, and into those eyes.. I saw the follow up documentary when they were trying to find the girl now adult.. very strange that eyes, in a way so saying, belong to a woman so shy, so private.. Well maybe it's just that, that she doesn't realize how speaking her eyes, her face, are.. Thank you so much for posting this, I love looking at this painting. woa

Oh my Lord, I checked this out purely because I saw "Gula" that's my name. This is so weird lol
wow thats great! can u have a look at mine cause Im about 4 hours into it and all I have/using is a HB and 6B and the paper is gettin torn now :S
so far the closest version I've seen in terms of the eyes and the pain(more emotion would have made this drawing absolutely perfect).Excellent drawing though,well done
