What a difference a forum makes! - updated image

I wanted to share what I have achieved since joining this forum in January. The picture is of my Mum who is no longer with us. I drew my very first portrait attempts in Nov/Dec 2010. I was so pleased with my drawing (done freehand I might add) because I could tell it was my Mum. But having been with the forum for a very short time, reading all comments not just with my own work but that of others, I have learnt a lot. I am sure that my drawings will speak volumes on what has been or can be achieved in a very short space of time and with the help and advice from this forum. I would just like to express my thanks to everyone who has at some point given constructive critisism/feedback on my drawings and those of everyone else. I most certainly would not have got very much better had it not been for their support. Thanks to all =D>

I have been away for a while and worked little on my drawing, but have done a little more work on it. As usual I am open to critisism/feedback on what to do to improve.

Re: What a difference a forum makes!

Great work, especially on the glasses rims! Not sure if you can do much about it now, but the top part of her hair looks a bit flat. You missed some of the lighter highlights there. Might be worth it to see if you can pull up some of that graphite to create highlights using a kneadable eraser.
Just your typical waffle-loving Canadian.

Re: What a difference a forum makes!

That is a world of difference. Incredible progress and you can onyl get better. It just goes to prove that you can learn to draw very well if you practice and listen to good, sound advice. Well done Nijinski - I bet your mum would be very proud.

Re: What a difference a forum makes!

Congratulations on your progress! Your improvement is inspiring and you can only continue to improve.

My nugget of advice is to pay attention to the whites of the eyes, there is subtle shading in them.

Re: What a difference a forum makes!

Thank you all for your kind comments. However, without the support and guidance of the members of this forum I doubt I would have achieved the results that I am presently being able to do. Thank you

Thank you for that advice, I shall certainly look to amending those features. She is still very much a WIP at the moment and there is so much still to be done. Thank you
