Expressions, emotions and people

girl with plaitsSo after my last picture I’ve been practising more at doing people and different styles and things.  The second one of these two pictures is definitely my favourite.  Both pictures were coloured in using coloured pencil.  The top one using my Polychromos  ones by Faber-Castell and then the second using my Luminance ones by Caran D’ache.

      looking 100% realistic.
