Vidar,

This looks really good with smooth skin and soft contours.

Win

You did a great job on rounding her cheeks.

Her neck looks too thin for the size of her face, though.

Good job overall.

 :heeha: Well done Win  :clap: :clap: :clap:   Her neck will probably look much better once you get the hair added in. Something about one or the other eyebrow is a bit bothersome. Can't put my finger on it exactly, just minor I'm sure. Perhaps someone else will see it. I need a bigger magnifier!  ;D
Cheers, Val

Thanks Mea and Val as always I appreciate you taking the time to comment. The neck is as it is in the template and I agree it may look better once I tackle the mammoth task of doing the hair. 
Now that you have pointed it out Val I shall study the eyebrows and see what the problem is, the one does seem a bit off or the other too neat  :)

great job with the shadings :clap: :clap: :clap:

to get the super smooth look, come back in with a lighter pencil, eg. if you ended with a B pencil in an area, you come back with a 2H or an H and gently "polish" away the lighter "blemishes". O0

This can be quite time consuming so stand back every now and again to ensure you are not polishing away marks that are not visible from normal viewing distance

This one was a really hard challenge. I started by laying down the light tone by scraping the 2H pencil & then using my finger/ & small brush to mould around the features. It was good to get that basic down, but as I progressed into the features and forms, I kept overworking & think I've made it a bit grubby now. It was a great lesson & I enjoyed doing this class :) Thanks Nolan

You have the tonal values and lighting effects looking very realistic, well done Tracey :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

In one of the lessons you will learn about my polishing technique which you can use to smooth out any inconsistencies you have in the skin tone so look out for that O0
