Autumn- The sketch of mom

 This is my mom...the sketch was sitting on my drawing board when I left for my vacation. I can say my hands were itching to complete it - and that's what I did last night! Although the 'finishing up' took more than five hours....I am generally happy with it.What do you think?

  2. The perfection you attained with this one truly reflects your loads of love for your mom! She looks stunning and the small details like the mole, the light wrinkles around the eye, everything amounts to perfection. I think you will probably look like this when you get to her age, there is a striking resemblance :-)
