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.

Well if this is supposed to be you you're gorgeous!
And this drawing is absolutely flawless and it portrays a vast variety of emotions. You can picture multiple scenarios in which this portrait would be a perfect illustration.

I used this in one of my poems (it's called "Every Day"; you should check it out) and I LOVE IT!!! It's amazingly realistic, and it almost looks like a photo. I disagree with you, I think the lips look very realistic, and you caught the lighting JUST right! Luvvv it! C:
