Good resemblance, Brony.

There's something not quite right with the nose, but I'm not sure what.  Maybe if you make a cut-out square and place it over different parts of your drawing and the original, you can see inconsistencies. (Hey, did I just invent a new technique???)

Other than that, I think you have done a wonderful job.

Hi Brony, I'm not an expert but I think that her teeth are a bit to big and may be the mouth to. But it's still a very nice pencil drawing. :clap: :clap:

Nice work Brony! :clap:  You are going to need shading under the nose and the mouth, look back at your reference picture, without the shading the nose just doesn't end and merges with the area about the upper lip.  Also, change the position of the highlight in one of the eyes so they are exactly the same position, if not it gives a cockeyed look, even that little dot of white can change the way it looks!

Lastly, the hair in the reference photo has some nice dark highlights, there shouldn't be any white paper in the hair mass, it makes it look thin and stringy, your teen will appreciate the make over ;)

Keep chipping away at it... you are close...  I spent about 6 hours on a pastel portrait today and I know what you mean wanting to just start again, and really, there is nothing wrong with that either, just be very careful when you place your features, and check them often... portrait are tough love I tell ya! O0 :painting:

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Brony, you have done well with your portraits and I would agree with what the others have said. The main thing is that you are learning a lot and most importantly enjoying what you are doing which is what art is all about.  So go for it girl.   Patricia

I agree with the shadow under the nose, that will show the height of the nose O0
The mouth seems okay to me.
The left of her face seems fine to me
The right hand side is missing a shadow - notice how her face is almost "straight" where it meets the hair, yours is rounder on the drawing

Brony,

Your children are lucky to have an artist for a dad.  You have done well on their portraits.

Yikes, I'm embarrassed, Brony.  I should have read your profile.  The kids are lucky to have such a talented mom.

Sorry - just learned a lesson - never presume or assume anything about anyone on PB.

Thanks for being a good sport about it.  Hope your children have grown up with your sense of humor.
