Portrait of a friends girlfriend^^
Wow,Wow,Wow...It looks so real.
Ha,Ha,Ha Ohh I Made My Self Feel Bad.
What a picture, nice artwork mate.
Try cleaning up your edges a bit more. Espescially the chin and jawline. I can see some gray in the hair, and i also believe i see some of the white background shining through several places.. All over it looks like you have a good start, but you should keep working on it, right now it looks a bit too unfinished.
I'm with slash. There are some good things happening here, but a lot of it could be cleaned up. There are just too many value shifts that seem either random or just messy.
It would also be helpful to post the reference if you used a photo, because there are a couple things that seem out of whack. At that angle, the nose is generally close enough and protrudes enough to eclipse a bit of the mouth. And her right eye seems smaller than her left (I keep looking for more lash as it curves around).
Very sweet start, though.
