This was another entry to my previous Dreamy Competition: [link]
This was the reference: [link]

I really liked the photo and found the right girl very sweet and so joyful. I think they are both pretty but I fell for this girl. Somehow it makes you smile just looking at her. So, I had to draw her. I wanted to give her a very flowy moving hair, as I picture her jumping in the air or something like that.
Keep smiling!:)

Made with soft charcoal.

love the reflexion in her eyes

By changing her hair you change part of who she is... even part of her culture. It's a challenge to draw different people differently.
