Really wanted to do a traditional portrait, so I grabbed a magazine and looked for a model (didn't have my own model who would volunteer, so I had to improvise).

Yes, she is a model, but I have no idea who she is, nor do I know her name, so don't bother asking.

Tools: 2H, 2B, 3B and 5B pencils
Reference: Magazine
Duration: about 5-7 hours (actually, I didn't keep time for this; didn't have a watch or clock with me...)

Enjoy! and thanks for your feedback :hug:

Very nicely done drawing. I especially admire that you have used Depth of Focus in it. That is really unusual in drawings and it is more realistic this way.
The technique is great. No doubts about that. However I still see some discrepancies in shadows :( I thinkg that the highglight on the right cheek should be more burnt when compared to the nose and the forehead. Also the nose seems to be too flat. Was it meant to be like that? There is an additional line over the upper lip which I think sould be more softened. I think the hair could be improved but that is just a minor rebuke :)
All in all I really like this drawing. Well done :nod:

Thanks so much!

No, the nose didn't look flat in the reference, but I guess I'm still not good with drawing noses :/ As for the right cheek, I was surprised to see that it wasn't that burnt in the reference for some reason, but I think I may have overlooked it. As for the hair, she was actually blonde, but I found it too difficult for me to do blonde hair in this particular portrait, so I made it darker (maybe a brunette), and thats probably where I messed it up entirely (which is why I wanted to show it as less as possible)

Thanks again for the critique! Mu ch appreciate it :)
