Gentle by Nephthys76 Gentle by Nephthys76
This drawing was done for the July monthly challenge for the Draw-Along group. I had a lot of fun with it. Since the person is not a famous recognizable face, I felt free to diverge as much as I wanted from the reference. I also played around with the hair, adding some "fly aways". I think I may have added too many, but I still like it.

I really love the way this drawing turned out, and I'm really proud of it.

Please provide me with constructive criticism as you see fit!

Materials:
11 x 14 Strathmore Bristol Vellum
Graphite pencils 6H - 2B
kneaded eraser
camel hair brush
