This as an exercise I did for Portraiture forum. Thought I should post it here since it was digitally drawn. After posting it, I realized that her lip and hand still need some attention. :eek:
Comments welcomed as always.:p

Wonderful! :clap: :clap: :clap: You've captured such a special time in life...one where the young person is stretching his wings and taking on new challenges. Beautifully drawn.

This is AWSOME!!!! could I ask what brushes you used?

I think a lil attention on the bottom lip might be needed, ... mouth looks a little too sharp.other than that perfect!

Kareen, Sherry, Jean, Smokin - Thanks.

Let's see if I can fix that 'sharp lip' today. LOL It's bothering me too. But noticed it after I click the 'post' button.

Smokin - I only used the 2B Pencil, and the stump for blending.

Very good! I like the subject matter as well. I remember being young and always drawing and drawing fascinated by what came out on the paper!

Janet, I'm in love with this drawing. You should be soaring over this one. One big problem... and I hate to be the bearer of bad news. But plagerism cannot be tolerated... it seems drawing that the little girl is working on, looks suspiciously like one of my son's masterpieces.:D

I managed to record a video of this drawing. So, if you like to see it here it is. It's in Flash. Better on DSL (broadband). It has pointers to different areas like the hands, crosshatching and blending, etc. The entire drawing took 1 hour 48 minutes but it was compress to 18 minutees for this video and the very beginning was eliminated. Enjoy if you watch it. Later on when I get rid of this cold I have, I will add audio to it. For now, I cannot speak! :( Maybe later on I will include the very beginning too but in a separate video.
