I'm only just learning how to use prismacolors, and I was SO proud of this particular drawing.  This was one of the items I submitted to a regional show (my very first submission to a show ever) and both of my pieces made it in to the juried show!

Critiques certainly welcome.......I'm not at all opposed to getting helpful advice!

Interesting. I also saw the pic of your friends niece with the puppy. Well done. I wish I was as good, half as good.

I love portraits that are more than just someone posing for a painting. This one tells a story and is well executed. Wonderful piece of art and something to take pride in.  Smiley
