Description:
This is based off of my face from a side view. The only thing I wish I had done better were the lips, because they don't look very realistic. Other than that, I'm proud of it.

Wow, you're amazing. and I disagree. the lips look perfect. They fit in with the whole 'tired' image. And if you did base this on your face, I suggest you get some sleepp =P

Gosh, this is wonderful. I honestly feel that the whole picture is realistic, including the lips. This is such an elegant work. The composition, the conveyed emotions, the detail (yet seeming simplicity) it's all amazing! Had to favourite it.
