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.

That is so beautiful. I have a picture I drew, people say that it sorta looks like me, but I don't know how to upload it onto the website because it uses a different program than what I normally use. Do you know how I could upload it? That is truly a work of art!!!! I like it alot!!!! Thanks for posting 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:

oh my gosh, this is so so good!! don't worry about the lips not looking real, they look fine. the texture in the hair looks so real, too. i wish i had just half of your artistic ability!
