Kelly Girl

I did this sketch to practise my shading. I used a light source this time, (something I don't usually do), to my right, to try and capture the right tone.
I think I might have it down a bit better this time.
It seems to have scanned a bit too light, as it is a lot darker IRL.
I used my graphite pencil, and watercolored pencils for the slight tint on the eyes, hair and mouth (although I don't know if you can see that in this scan).

Hi Tonniece - Great sketch. Her eyes really pop! and you did a beautiful job with the hair and mouth. It's hard to see some of the subtle detail with the scan but I'm sure it's even nicer in person. Thanks for the note about the hangings. I'm sorry you had no luck finding them but I appreciate you looking. Just don't drive yourself nuts looking for the pictures now! Take care - juj

Kelly Girl has such a bright smile. She looks like the kind of person that has inner joy. I like her very much, Tonniece! :)

I love the hair and mouth! She radiates a lot of personality. Great work
