Jen

This took about an hour. Mechanical Pencil (0.5mm) on printer paper. I took Drawing I last Spring, but haven’t done much since then.

The reference photo is here:

I didn’t have time to do any kind of background or the shirt, but are there any crits?

Not bad at all. You could put some highlights in the hair though.

Looks nice.

I’m not really the drawing artist myself. But I know that when I try I really have trouble with the shading. You did a good job with that.

I don’t have any crits besides the fact that in the picture the girl wears red and in your drawing it looks more like white. But I actually think that that’s an improvement!
