This is pretty good. I love the way you did the hair draped along her neck, it looks very realistic. The shading is also nice and smooth. Good work! :D

Y'know, it just dawned on me that she looks super familiar. Is this Kylie Funk? If so, I grew up with her brother ;P

If not, nevermind! But it's a lovely picture of course!

Yes, that is her. Her brother is Jamie, I used to work with them both.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Jamie. I meant her brother Chris, the middle child (;

i love the way you draw hair, thats one of the only parts i have a bit of trouble with (other than noses, they can be hard too sometimes :shakefist:) hehe

Novastar2486 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2006
Try using eraser cuts for the highlights on the hair, they help alot. I used to have trouble with noses too, but now I find hands and feet to be the most challenging.
Thanks for the comment!

Damn... it's that the shadow on the shoulder show that this is a drawing. Otherwise I would think this is a grayscale photo! Absolutely amazing drawing!
