I think this is a lovely portrait. I love the colours, the lips are beautiful and the skin tone is nice. The only problem with the image, is that it looks a little rushed in some areas, and I think this takes away from it. The hair and the shoulder don't look as though they have been done with as much care as the eyes and lips, for example.
I also think the nose is a little too long for this to be an ultra-realistic portrait - but if you are aiming for a slightly artistic portrait, then I think it looks great
I love the sketchy way you have blended your colours, and overall it's a beautiful image with a lot of depth. I think you have done a wonderful job!
Wow, it's like you drew me, but older and with a slightly different hair color. No offense, but there doesn't seem to be enough shading around the eyes. They seem so... flat (?). I also noticed that the eye on my left hand side is pink. Does she have pinkeye? I love the way you drew the hair, my art teacher would faint all over that because it's so good. The eyes are a really good color, a nice oceany blue. Well, that's all i got!~ shakes8 May the odds be EVER in your favor~ That's from the Hunger Games, BTW.
But the whole thing overall is lovely, it looks extremely realistic. I love how you've coloured it as well. When it comes to traditional art.. I can't colour at all. The freckles, lips, eyes and everything is really lovely. And the hair.. it also looks really real as well. You did an amazing job
