I listened to the advice given, and tried to apply some of the accuracey to the portraits as I do to the trains, what do you think, still got a bit to go But I think this is one of the best I've drawn, thanks very much for your advice----Alan

:clap: The eyes are lovely Alan, I think this is the best (looked in on the other thread yesterday before I went to bed). The neck looks too thin but with the style this is in, I don't think that matters? Hair is fun too.

She's a smasher, Alan :D

Do you realise how much your portraits have improved from your first portrait posting - incredible.

Wow! I love this. I love the lines in it and I love the serene yet mischevious look on her face!

You are doing great. I agree with Doug. I would like to see a little more color in her face especially. I think if your worked from photos it might be easier.

Alan, this is smashing!! It would be hard to do a portrait just from your imagination without something to look at. Her eyes are beautiful!! You did a great job!! :clap: :clap:

The others had that vixan look but this is an angel - a real lady.

Thanks very much Patty, I've tried to make some of the sketches actually look like the person but it never seems to turn out that way, sometimes I think I draw too fast maybe I should concentrate more and take things a bit slower, but when I get started I want to see some results:confused:

Thank you Giselle

Pam thank you very much I don't know if I've got enough gumption to try what you suggest, and if I ever get close to Montana I'll pay You a visit, have no fear

Anita thank you glad you like her--------Alan

Here's another one I did today

Your sketches are just lovely, Alan. Where did you learn to draw eyes like that? I find eyes so hard to do in portraits and consider them the most important feature -windows to the soul.

I actually like this one because you are introducing more colors and more modeling of the features. that is the way you should be progressing.
