Charlotte Gainsburg (WIP nearly there now)

Materials listed on first upload of this picture.

I am now a Gold Member of PIL!!:)

Have spent another few hours on this. Nearly there! I've brought her hairline down, changed lips, darkened cheek on the left, darkened eye on the left and slimmed chin/cheek on the right, and added more hair! To see a close up please join my page on facebook - cherie harrap (artist) I've not got a URL yet!

Cherie, this is beautiful, superb pencil work!!

I love the softness of this, the hair and the skin - gorgeous. the way you've drawn the hair over the eyes takes a lot of skill, and the shading... wonderful work, love it.

Yes very nice and very subtle. They eyes really depict a stare. This would have to be inherent in the reference picture - its really well done Cherie!
