MY COMMENTS:
I am creating portraits for senor exhibition. This is a portrait of my sister.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I would like to know if this portrait works or not, trying to decide if I should show it to my professor. I feel like somethings wrong with the left side but cant seem to fix it. All feedback welcome!

Yes it is a fine portrait. Maybe placement of the head more to our right would balance it a bit better. The abrupt bottom border of the figure makes it look like a plaster bust, which it is not. I would suggest completing the figure, and filling in a simple background to complete the image.

beautiful. Yes, you are right. Her right eye looks to be on a flat plane instead of in a rounded surface going away from the viewer. Also, make sure the inside points of the two eyes line up according to the slant of the face. Her right eye is too high.

Good advice from karenlee too.
