the likeness of this sketch went a little wrong along the way - i realise i need to work on my proportion and layout
I think it's great. I recognized her from the thumbnail immediately.
I think it is a great likeness!
I see no fault at all with this!! The expression and construction of this is flawless! Very nicely done!
I was flipping through portraits in the traditional gallery and this one really popped out at me, the perspective is good but I don't think thats the greatest thing...its...a softness contrastedness with a hard gaze that demands our attention, though she refuses to look. I know this was primarily a study, but the composition and expression is just incredible. And perfect choice of medium, the toning really adds the right character.
I still think it's utterly awesome.
