 That's very nice, I can never do faces (or hands) so I'm always impressed with people who can.  Is it someone you know, or made up?

No, this isn't anyone I know; it's a model from the 40's or 50's but I'm not sure who. I love doing faces, that's what I usually do. Hands are not bad either. Thanks for your comment Smiley

It looks like Maryiln Monroe when she was still going by "Norma Jean". Excellent drawing, by the way.

 Shocked The most impressive thing about this drawing is the teeth. I hate drawing teeth! They always come out looking really really cheesy. Good job, keep drawing!

Part them and feel my finger tips
Trace the moment, fall forever

Just one touch and I'd be in

Thanks again Smiley I agree, teeth can be tricky. They're not my favorite features to draw either, but in this picture i think they turned out okay.

I love it..great job. Is that just in pencil? I can never figure out how to make the soft shadowy smudges..like, say, around the nose. Any tips?

Hey Leah, thanks for your comment.
I did this picture so long ago I hardly remember the techniques I used, lol. Well, to get soft smudges, before I even start the picture, I use graphite (you could use pencil too) to make some smudges on the paper. This just gets a good medium to work with. I'm pretty sure that around the nose I just made some pencil marks (yes, this whole thing was doen in pencil) and smudged them with my finger. I don't think I used a rubbing stick. I usually only use one for small areas. The smudges around the nose aren't that big, that's because when I was near the end of the picture, I used an eraser on the  cheeks to highlight them. Some of the smudging went away after I used the eraser.

Okay, I hope that wasn't too long or confusing.
