This is not a portrait of a real person, only in my imagination. I drew this using a "My First Ticonderoga" (ha ha). The top is cut off, where I signed the portrait, but nothing else was missed. My only regret is that her expression isn't quite the "Mona Lisa" I was aiming for. Hope you like it!

Looks quite nice, Laura Oliver! The shading on the bow is especially effective, as well as around the nose, I think. The subject looks rather sweet and more than a little innocent. The purest kind of face, you know? She looks like what I always thought Jane Eyre might look like. Well done!
