Very good, OK is it important to be perfect or the same as the photo better to practice your skills than to keep drawing the same work. I think it is very good and looks like her, try to look inside the emotions look for photo's that give say a good facial expression or something you feel try different methods like draw from the negative or draw the spaces between things. Expand your skills use different pencils all learning is about what you do not what others do self taught is what all artist do because no one can teach talent and skill which you have. I have some simple tips to help with drawing Depth is the 3D look in a drawing it helps to put background shading in to help with this. Construction is when we first draw say the frame of the drawing deciding how, where and when useful to plan the look. Perspective is having things correct to one and other. Equipment there are many different types of pencil not just hard and soft. I used the B range from B1 to B 8 and a graphic pencil range the same. Also there are watercolour pencils they have better stronger colours and can be used dry or wet. Another and my personal favourite is sketching pencils simple name but they are water soluble range from light wash, medium wash and dark wash they can be used as a drawing pencil or pre painting sketching pencil. OK there are many others all types mediums for different jobs have fun try them they make great Christmas presents. I love helping young people if you what any advise them just ask. brainfree. Score For your work :clap: :clap: :clap: :grin: :thumbup: :8) :magic:

Thank you so much! I appreciate all the help I can get! I only have a B2 pencil, but I will try some more once I make some money lol. I've never heard about water color pencils, and that sounds quite interesting. I'll have to make a run to the store now!! thank again! :) :) :)
