I got so caught up in making the skin tones "alive" that I totally forgot to look at the photo. Now that I'm tired of the project I see that I've made her forehead much too low. Sigh. oh well, next year I'll do better. It was a fun exercise. It's great to see what other people have done. Thanks so much to Karin Jurick for her wonderful Website.

A quick and dirty sketch of my assigned photograph, this is fun!
