Very beautiful traditional art I must say, your shading is very beautiful. The way you have done the hair is very nice and it fits in smoothly with the background.

The amount of details you have put to the background is sufficient and the details on the face are plentiful, you shading is very beautiful, and through it you have managed to successfully highlight all the important parts of the image such as the eyes and some parts of the hair.

The only minus I see is the dark straight line going from the right eye to the nose; it looks too unnatural.

Overall its an amazing drawing! :)

Well, i can definetly say that i like this. You definetly know how to use the tools of the trade. I actually got fooled for a second. I thought this was charcoal intermixed with Graphite Pencil.

I'm giving originality such a medium score is that it's just a portrait, i can't really say much about it, though i like the graphical style of the drawing. that mix of realistic shading, countered with the use of hard lines to accentuate details on the figure is something i like. for example; how the hair manages to look realistic, and in contrast the hard lines you used to integrate the eyes on your figure.

further more i can see you have a great understanding in the build up of a face, you know how to illustrate hair, maybe a bit less on the draping of her clothes, but this is a portrait, so i really the focus is the face instead of her clothing. so technique wise it's technically flawless. Originality wise a bit medium, and it didn't leave such a severe impact on me. but at the end of the day i really like it.

What a great expression! Your shading is fantastic, too. One thing - her shoulders look a little small. Are they supposed to be hunched?

This is done quite well! I really admire the borders around the shaded areas it kinda gives it that old school look that looks almost a bit wet in some way....really nice

wow! this piece is so lovely! I can see the amount of effort you put into this! the hair feels so real to me and although I have only a slight problem with the face, it doesn't obstruct the overall feel to this! Love it!

I love these kind of sketchy pencil drawings. The values are great on this and the face is done very well I think my favorite part is the hair it's so well done. Love this.

Her hair looks extremely realistic and what makes her unique is that she is not one of those perfect girls with perfect features, she looks like an ordinary woman, and your pencil skills are just amazing :)

She looks like nicole kidman to me? only with a broader jaw. I really like the wispiness of her hair with the hard lines of her face.
