I just finished drawing a pencil portrait of Simone Simons from epica, great band by the way.

I don't have much experience at drawing portraits, i've only done 4 so far.
It took me around three hours to complete it, so here it is,
tell me what you think!

It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip.

I love her voice and their sound in general. Listen to Cry for the moon, it's my favorite epica song, they've got a killer combination of violins ang guitars.

I started drawing portraits since dicember last year, but i've always been drawing cartoons and stuff.
