Day 27

My friend Alice nominated herself to be my portrait guinea pig.  I know her smile very well so I can tell that I've somewhat captured her likeness. 

However it's much more accurate on the left side than the right (so I've done a second photo concealing the right side showing me that the left side definitely looks like her).  I think I've drawn her eyes too far apart because I've drawn them as if seen face on when in face her head is turned slightly.

The nose and mouth were a pain but I'm glad I kept rubbing out and redrawing them until I was happy.  What's the point in adding the detail when you know there's a mistake in the basic structure?  Shame I missed the mistake in the eye though.

Anyway, Alice, this is just attempt number 1! 

Time: about 2hrs

Pencils: HB, 4B, 8B
