I absolutely adore Helena Bonham Carter's beauty and am infatuated with her character in Sweeney Todd, Mrs. Lovett.
One day while feeling awfully inspired I drew this up. My first try at two faces of the same person in one page.
What do you think? I know there are things I could fix here and there.

My camera didn't do her eyes justice. They really look deep and sunken in but still big and round just like hers.

General unrequited tips on sketching: Shade more. Shading is scary at first! But shading makes things more dramatic and less washed-out. Resist the urge to smudge the graphite with a finger or overuse a tortillion. Blocking with a light touch using the hardest pencil you have is a good idea, especially when you're training your eye.

Looks like you have a knack for sketching. Keep practicing!
