I really, really like your floral sketches below! On the self portrait, yes, I can tell it's you. Portraits are hard...I have a bad habbit of drawing one eye higher than the other.

Dudette, this is my area and I can proudly comment...

This is a great start, it does look like you, it would look more like you as you try some more serious sketching

Enjoy your long weekend !

If you used the photograph you have in your profile, there are some changes that I would suggest to create a likeness - it would be better if you made the hair look wavy and then make the cheek bone prominent by narrowing down the side of the face.

Thanks for the comments on my blog!
Good job on this sketch!
This is a very hard photo to work off of. It is always harder when the face is turned and plus your one eye is not shown. Here is a little tip with drawing faces that has always helped me. I draw the right eye first then base the entire face off that. It is a great way to scale things--for example in the photo you measure your eye then figure out how many eyes it takes to make up your nose. Then with the eye you drew you can scale the nose correctly.
Hope this makes some sense and helps! Keep at it--you have the talent!:)

Hi Nirmala,

ur blog is very nice,i am watching this place since long time. Today feel like typing something here. u r reallyy talented & creative.
yeah.. there is a smallllll suggestion for portraits, observer the orientation & where the potrait is facing or luking. In ur PIC ur head is tilted but in ur sketch u made it straight. so u miss de clues in the pic.
