I like it- it's quite realistic, but I think what's standing out to me (and maybe you?) about it is that the proportions, esp. on the face on the right, aren't quite right--- for example, the eyes are supposed to be in the middle of the head, etc.  I find what helps is to look at the drawing in a mirror alongside of your face, and compare the proportions, placements, etc.

first off I must say that I love it, i love the expressions and everything. the only thing I can really say that I see is off is the proportion of the hand to the face, the palm would take up most of her cheek and just be larger because a hand is as large as a face. That, and the size of the ear. But again, I must say that this piece is fantastic and looks amazing for a work done with conte. Conte is one medium I find really hard to work with, mainly because its so messy.

First off let me say  great job. The hair turned out really really well. The only thing I think I would change would be the shadow around the hand and the cheek. It seems a little linear to me. Maybe if you just blended it out a bit more.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

i agree with the proportions i think it will make this perfect.

I think the proportions look a little off. The one on the left isn't too bad, but on the right, her eyes are up too high. If the forehead was extended a little more, it would be more on cue. For the hand I think you outlined a little too much, and for the faces you could probably shade in a little dark in places. You dont have to, I'm just seeing too much of one shade. The highlights look really good.

Overall, I think you did a good job on the hair, that's something I always have trouble with.
