wow... your asking for a critique I think you already know this is pretty remarkable. But let me explain why this is so beautiful. The portrayal of the hair is so defined in movement, value, contrast and shape. Im sorry correction the hair, the flowers and the dress are rendered good. The sense of light in the picture is evident. The detail again is breathless, but the face and the arm are barely touched. Only hint of shadow is shown but that doesn't mean it was done on accident, theres so much detail in everything else the lack of value of the face is overlooked. Also the way you've mirrored the flowers and the hair and dress is clever. As the viewer i feel that comparing the girls innocence to a flower. Good concept!! I would go on but I'm sure your aware of how beautiful this is,

I'm not as good as you, but however, if you cold just put in a tiny but of. More substance like, her closing her eyes and the awkward pose..(sorry, but still) and you could try experimenting with that shade you used, I suggest, adding more 6B like dark tones, the drawing looks substance less, and could really do with shadows, Excellent drawing, most marvellous one ever seen, Keep it up girl!

What I reaaaaaaaaalllllllyyyyyyy like is the fluidity but yet stiffness of it all, it really is what keeps it together.

I think you should do paintings which require a lot of experimenting, (however, might kick you into an artist's block) so, can you do it?

Yes, we all know that you are awesome, there is no doubt ;P
Is this done in one pencil color or multiple? I mean I know what editing can do, but I've seen so many of this color blending I'm just real curious.
This is beautiful, just kinda wish she was a bit more "moving" than sleepy. Naw, who am I kidding, I can't complain with THIS!!

It's done with one type of pencil. Most of my works are done with one type of pencil or mechanical pencil.
I'm trying to use 2 types of pencil now but still seems to like using one for some reason. @.@

haha sleeping face XD

I love the flourish elements and toning of colors. Her wavy hair stretch gently to the point that her face is looking to the front is so sexy. She's kinda floating from bushes of flowers...
