You captured the look in her eyes gorgeously...and you've done perfect justice to a fantastic reference photo. Bravo! I'm also in awe of the detail in the feathers... I can almost feel their softness through the computer screen
if I remember correctly I mixed in some charcoal in this one on the darkest parts, because I didn't have my Staedtler Mars Lumograph 8B pencil back then, it's the one I use on my recent works to get the blacks black. yes, I use fixative too, clear acrlyic spray.
I love how you draw the mask, the details are very precise from the design of the mask and you make the feather look so delicate and soft.
The way you draw Anna is very wonderful, I like how you did the details from the lighting to her eyes to the wonderful details on her mouth and you make her back so smooth yet strong because of the shading.
Also, along with the details I love how you give depth by having shadows and the lighting on your work to give amazing dimension.
You have beautiful talent with your art and I love it.
