Portrait from life

Aiko drawing pre critique

Hi Matt, this is Caitlin.

I was staying with this lovely girl’s family a few nights ago when she asked me to draw her. The lighting wasn’t great, nor the angle, but she asked nicely so I couldn’t say no!

I blocked in the basics with her modelling for me, but eventually it was her bed time so I took a quick photo and finished it from that. I couldn’t work out what that shadow on the light side of her face was, so I skipped it. I tried to keep her hair soft and loose. Looking at it now I think the ear on the shadow side is too low. Given the difficult drawing conditions, how do you think I did? Is there anything you would alter?

Thank you
