actually it is!  You see, my hand was severely damaged saving orphans from a  Building fire. since my rehabilitation my OT therapist encouraged me to not only try to see again but to draw.... I can't thank the therapists from Sunny Shaddy Oaks Therapy Hospital for the inspiration. This is a Picture  of my therapist....I think. Afterall things are a little blurry still.

I think you can work on the shading some more... try to add shadows in the face area, since a person's face is never smooth as marble. The nose bridge, areas under the eyes and mouth, etc. should create shadows. Push the dark tones more, so you can add more volume to the hair, for instance. On the subject of hair, it also looks a little stiff, especially the hair right above the head.

Thank you for your input. I can see where i need to work on the hair (not my best area, never has been), as far as the shading this was a quick face proportions practice and didnt take much time on the dark tones. I agree on a face is never that smooth (only in dreams and mag.s) I am truly greatful for your imput and will take all of it in to consideration on my next drawing. Thank You :)

Not much of an artist myself, but here we go...:) I think the shading in this girls face is PERFECT, honestly - could never get it that good in my art class. Also the eyes, nose, and mouth looks super realistic...I would suggest you work on improving hair. Where her hair is in relation to the face is too, but the hair itself could be better. Hopefully this helps - good luck Picasio! :-p :)

This is a really good drawing:-) I can't really critique or anything cause I can barely draw stick people . But this drawing looks really good.
