Hi everyone,

I have been missing from the forums for some time, but I am back with a pencil in my hand at long last. I thought I would share my current project with you. I haven't finished it yet, but if anyone can spot any areas where I might be "off" I would appreciate your input...


This is the iPhone photo I am working from...


Regards,

Carol

Yes, Carol, I remembered the sad time you and your family have gone through but it is now in the past and you have to look ahead, as hard as it may be, but life carries on and so must we.  We will all meet again one day.  Patricia

very good likeness so far. :clap: :clap: :clap:
great drawing work :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

What I can suggest is the lighter curve to the right of the mouth on the neck - the highlight line darkens as it meets the face, just darken that line away as it nears the face

I have worked on the lighter tones, pumped up the darker tones, and corrected the jawline as per Nolan's suggestion.
