thankyou for replying :) my mam actually thinks that the initial face looks like me, but with the additional hair and aliceband, she was blushing because she thought it looks alot like her when she was my age..

i'm glad i caught that era. my mam certainly thinks those times are unforgetable! :)

i was expecting eyes and nose to come out all over the place considering i glanced at the paper every once in a while just for a few seconds .. kind of suprised myself with proportions, though i wasn't really worried about it.. the idea was just to have some fun and add some imagination.

thanks for looking here!

I really like this one Ciarrai! Explore more in this area.
Do another to go with this with a hippie look, the flowers in the hair sort of thing. Heck you could do a few and keep changing the hair styles, even go with some color on a few. I think that would be neat.

I can't think of the artist name, but when I was in highschool I had a book I found at the library of his with pen & ink drawings. This reminds me of his type of style. he had some off the wall stuff though. One was of a woman and her skin unzipped so she could hang it up at night.
