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!
