Thank you all so much. The sentimental value makes it probably one of my most favourite paintings <3

Outstanding job!  Realistic forms/shading and the off-center angle of the figure makes the composition more visually interesting.  I prefer to work from photographs when I do portraits, rather than live models, because they never shift position and the lighting/shadows never change, but a sleeping individual is the next best thing, as they're also unlikely to move on you.
