Nicely done, the eyes are particularly impressive. The only critics that springs to mind is that you've made the light around the top lip (and on the side of the nose to a lesser extent) look like white hairs, which doesn't correspond to the ref.

Very epic drawing.

The details are magnificent, I like how you use different color to indicate the shadows and the face anatomy are very precise. Love how you did the skin tone and how your work have a wonderful yet realistic texture:love:.

You did a very amazing work, keep it up.

How i got so much detail into this? Honestly i dont know!I guess i do art in my way like we all have a special way,right?
All i know is that while i am on the process i have this...bliss,its like a dream you dont want it to end,you know?
But everything comes to an end apparently,and then i am searching for the next subject :)

They are watercolor pencils indeed :)
I believe i must *blame* the texture of the paper,for this result but i like the fact it looks like a painting rather than a drawing.. :giggle:

Hi dear, this is amazing ! I love the richness of your colors.
I'm personally drawing a color portrait at this moment, my real first one, and I find it so hard choosing colors to mix for skin color.
And be sure there's no oblivion about you, :love: just so little time these days! :(
