    I really like the portraits. The top one is a really good start. I would probably just spend another 2 hours on that one refining the hair and then and the skin. It would make a nice piece.

    Hey there! It looks good here so far.
    I like those figure life studies. Nothing to crit really, keep doing those life studies you are on a right track with em.

    Hi Samia, Thank you for visitng my sketchbook and giving some crit.
    You have a great sketchbook and I really like the looseness of your figure drawings. Toned paper and white pencil for highlight really help bring them even more to life. My crit would be i think you could push the value range between your portraits some more. I hope this helps!
