The name of this drawing is smothered. i used references from
i think that her hair could have been done more carefully and the beads on her necklace but i might go over them later. for now what do you think?

Couldn't find the reference image you used but I really like what you've done. Did you mean for the hand to blend into the face a bit? Makes it interesting but I'd like to see how it'd look with the hand defined better. The hair looks great to me, wouldn't change it. Good work :)

ahhh... i'm sorry the link just goes to her page, the gallery is there but you have to click a few things but here is the link straight to the picture.

so the hand does blend into the face a bit but i don't think as much as i did it. damn printers and losing details. i'm looking at the picture now and noticing all the things i missed drawing. good thing i haven't sprayed it with anything so i'm going to go back and fix it.

her arm seems to get lost in her dress

other than that it's really striking.

I think you'd did a nice job for the pic you used -it's a good likeness. But the photo you used is overexposed, the whites are washed out and detail in the hand and arm lost because of it. You could improve on it(the photo) in my opinion.

Personally I think you did an outstanding job on the
hair, but then I'm not very good at drawing.
Perhaps a little more detail in the eye, and the
an indication of the top of the hand from the face.
I understand the concept of lost edge, but the hand
and face just blend together there a little too much.
Great drawing I'm always envious of those who can.
