This piece is my first participation in :icondraw-along: monthly challenge.

As for the drawing i feel that i'm more confident with my lines and technique but of course i still need more training, but despite all of that i always missed up something that end me up unsatisfied with my piece :crying: because i wanna be more accurate i drew a net but i guess i was harsh and left an OBVIOUS marks on the paper :no:

i cant fix it.. and i really got tired and bored (this piece has the longest hours i ever spend with any piece of all my drawings) i know that i really need to be more patience.. i'm trying :frustrated:

anyway.. till next time

The shading looks pretty nice. I like it especially around the neck and collar bone

Still very nice. I believe we all continue to learn, but I know what you mean. I get bored with pieces too, especially those that take a very long time to complete. I also know how much time can go into drawing "lace" (see mine of Lady In Lace). That piece is only about 10" tall and I put nearly 40 hours into that one.
I like this though. Keep up the great work.

Thanks a lot
Btw.. i checked your Lady in Lace drawing.. its incredible, i cant imagine my self drawing these lace cause probably i will end it up by killing my self :XD: . what i love the most is your A Child's Wonder that piece is genius. :clap:

I have not done another drawing with detailed lace since that one. Maybe it will be my only one. "A Child's Wonder - Encore" is one of my personal favorites too. It hangs in my living room. Actually that is the same child as in "Baby Sarah" and one of about eight family portraits I have completed. Each person will get their own when I pass away. Until then I display them at home and have them in shows.

Also, thanks for the fave on that piece too.
