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.

This reminds me very clearly of someone who has been working very hard at something, and is almost done, but has already been pushed to the limit. And it is amazing that you did this with just a pen--I am so jealous of your perfect lines (well, not really: they're just really good!!!).

The details are amazingly good, and the side profile of the face is really cute.  Great job!

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.
