Hi everybody!
Sorry I'm late late late!
Haven't done anything for ages ( actually tried something last week, but didn't get very far and gave up on it as a bad job!!!)
Iwas really attracted by Silly Sarah, so thought I'd give her a bash. Quite fancy doing her in CP one of these days. Who knows, I might get my act together.
What a lovely little girl! She looks so cheeky, but that might be because she's sticking her tongue out of her mouth!!!!
This is graphite on paper. I think I need to go in on the darks even more. About 2 and a half hours, with loads of interruptions!
Take care all!

Made me smile right from the thumbnail. Beautifully done ! You captured the playful spirit of this child immediately ! I agree with you, go a little darker still but she's a great drawing ! Well done ! :clap:

Oh, she's awesome! Yes, more darks would make it pop, but it looks great already.
Be sure and give us a peek if you decide to do it in cp!

Beautiful job on this. I love it. Keep going inspite of the interruptions, and repost when you have added the darks you want. Can't wait to see the final version.

Thanks for kind comments.
Here's an update. At the moment I think that's it, but I might change my mind later! :p

Very well done. Hope to see it as a CP one day. Its a good idea to not get carried away with the darks. Some variation in tone makes for a pleasing and expressive work but don't get the idea that the entire tonal range is necessary for a good pic.
Love these kids and your silly faced Sarah is cute as all get out.

With this kind of ability, you should never stop for long. This is charming and I know I could learn a lot studying your technique.

Fleur -- Sarah looks sooo cute in your sketch. You've done a wonderful job -- I can't wait until she sees it -- she'll love it!! It's a rare quality to be able to sketch people, and you've captured her likeness beautifully. Thanks.

Great job! Her mum should be sure to trot this out to show her first real boyfriend, don'tcha think? ;) And yes! DO try this in color! Would be fantastic!

Gosh everybody! I'm overwhelmed!!! Thank you so much for all those lovely, positive comments. I must say I found this picture a real challenge and still there are aspects I reckon I could improve on.
Joy, I hope Sarah likes it!!! :)
Charlie's Mum, I'll do my best to stick with you all! I love this forum, it's just that recently I've not been able to get here! :( But Silly Sarah has remotivated me now!
Will definitely giver her a try in CP!
Take care everybody, and "see" ya all at the weekend!!!

I'm late this week but had to say how much I like this drawing. You have captured her cheeky expression so well.
