This is the result after reading a rather sad story, where a hopeful character was let down by fate.

This is beautiful! I hope you don't mind, but for an English project, we had to find artwork connecting to a character in Maus. I feel like this picture connects beautfully to that of the character Mala from the comic book. Great job!

I drew the side-profile first in 4H pencil, and then lightly shaded in the areas that were supposed to be the darkest with the same pencil. Then, I used lighter and darker shades of blue for the eyes, and worked on the next darkest thing :the flower.

After the flower was done, I used normal graphite pencils to shade the picture in black and white values. After that, I went in with water color paint and touched up on the eyes and the flower and the lips.

Once the face and the flower was completed, I painted in the hair, and added the thick gray strip in the back to help differentiate the face from the white paper :)
