Looks so real
Great portrait! I really like the serene expression, and the realistic lighting and texture of the hair. The shading of her face also gives her good form, and the dark background helps the viewer focus on her features.
Very well done. I love how you blended the background to make her stand out(especially the blending with the hair details make it very nice). also great job with drawing the eyes, I know out of experience, it's not the easiest thing to get right- You did a wonderfoul job in shading and colouring. And the grade of realism is astonishing! The changes you took in colouring fit very well. I really like the grade of detail vs vagueness you took in this. I think in this drawing she looks older than in the reference, maybe a bit more tired, but still has all that grace. Great work!
Came out really nice, good work with the dramatic lighting
