This one was definitely a learning experience for me. In the past I might have just tried to capture the likeness, but since I've grown as an artist, I really wanted to try to capture the play of light as well. Her face is mostly in shadow and I was a little worried she'd come out looking "dirty" rather than shaded, but I'm happy with how it turned out and the hair was lots of fun! I made some changes after this photo but I didn't get a chance to take a new one before handing it off.
