Thanks, Val and Bill. 

I like the style, too.  Will probably do more.

Thanks, Patricia.  Pansies are really pretty easy once you understand the shape.  To ve doing them freehand is now quite a milestone for me,

This started out as a self-portrait, but I think it's somebody else's self.

great attempt :clap: :clap: :clap:
What you want to work on is sketching each feature in the correct place. I am assuming you were in front of a mirror? If so, use a proportional divider to help you in the beginning or alternately use it to check yourself after doing the initial light sketch lines, but before you start the shading work. That way you will always get a likeness O0

Thanks, Nolan and Mary Lou.

Yes, I have proportional dividers and should have used them.  Next time for sure.

Sometimes I surprise myself when I draw something almost effortlessly and it actually looks art worthy.

Am pleased with this one. I'm getting it!!! (Well. maybe the scale is a bit off, though.)

Good sketch Mea! Maybe some more darks in some areas?
