The fact that so many pictures that were taken of her were corrupted and showed her at her worst makes this picture all the more beautiful. The shading, the highlights in her hair that make it all look real make it better than any picture. Beautiful, extremely beautiful. This is what many artists should look at when drawing, to show that each part of the face is made of of certain parts, and shading tehniques. The impact it had on me when i saw was something of a marvel too, I mean looking at it I thought it was an actual picture, and the fact that she could be seen beautiful after her untimely death is amazing.
What do you think?

this might be one of the most amazing drawing of her i've ever seen to be honest. and i'm wondering why it doesn't have a DD yet or even over 100ish favorites i mean, your artworks deserve to be more known.

the shading is just perfect literally everywhere. the details are quite stunning they left me speechless for a few minutes.

my favorites are the eyes and the lips i just can't explain how real they look!

the only thing that doesn't look as real as the rest of her, the hair maybe? if they would've have been just a litttttttttle bit softer it would be perfect

but who am i to say this? i wouldn't do any better!

keep up the good work! :blowkiss:

Simply exquisite use of symbolism here.
I love the tonality of the face you've demonstrated so subtly here.
Well done.
