New Portrait Drawing

New portrait drawing that I finished the other day of Jessica. This drawing was a bit of a struggle, I actually had to start the whole thing over on a new piece of paper, which is pretty rare for me. When I do a drawing of someone I know and I want to to look just like them, I spend a lot of time trying to get the likeness as perfect as possible, and I wasn't sure if I had the likeness. I think the reason why I was unsure, is that she is a friend of a friend, so I am not as accustomed to her face as someone I would see more often. At the end of the day though, everyone knew who it was, most importantly her. With likeness aside, I have to say this may be my best portrait yet, as soon as I was done with it I wanted to frame it. I was trying to play around with edges more and not be so literal, I know I can push it a lot further still. Also if you haven't noticed, I like to design hair, its tough, but fun.
