This is a shading-exercize sketch that was done quickly and for fun. Her expression turned out interesting though...

You said this was a quick sketch exercise? I'm having a hard time believing that. This picture it amazing. Great job.

"Live your art" -made this one up myself. Simple, but true.

I absolutely love this picture especially the fact you did it so fast. The only problem I have is the eyebrow could have been done better than it is. But other than that the sketch is very good. You have talent.

I loved how you made her face somewhat manly. It truly brought out the "real" women.

I've been looking through various photo archives online to find a photograph that captures the mood of a story I'm writing. I think I just found it. Thank you! I cannot believe you created this so quickly, on a whim. It's beautiful.

i think it's sensational.

her expression IS very unique and that makes the picture seem devious.

her face is so present for it being a light sketch that the missing half just makes it more mysterious.

you are obviously talented and i encourage you to continue.
