Awesome, I'm stunned by her eyes and hair. Looks pretty real. The chin looks a little flat though, maybe if you shade a little more around it. Otherwise nice!

I agree with the shading on the chin it seems a bit underworked compared to the rest.

You freckle-fetishist you! ;)
She's very pretty and you did a lovely drawing of her! Her eyes and lips stand out to me as being exceptional strong points in this drawing; very nice details in those!!
I'm curious, what's the new stuff you tried in this?

Excellent job! :clap:

LOL i knew you would mention the freckles :D

Im really happy this time with the lips think it's the first time they look right.

The new stuff i tried is laying the first layer of graphite with a b pencil in stead of 3h wich i did before. Also finally used the tombow for hair wich works great!!!!!
And i seen a tutorial about eyebrows with how they are suposed to grow and it looks more real indeed.

Thanks :)

I guess it depends a lot on how dark your final drawing needs to be to decide what sort of layer to put down first. B is often a decent starting point, especially when you go blending it, it will look a little lighter as well. So a good way to save some work. ;)

I never dared to go dark at start in portraits but its much easier to blend and erase with the b in stead of 3h it seems.
But maybe i was just thinking that :D

No that's absolutely certain. :nod: The B pencils are a lót easier to blend just because they're softer.
I pretty much only use my H's for initial linework and parts that don't have to be blended later on.

Very good work. My only suggestion would to be to soften up the shading between the eyes and eyebrows, great work here.
