Young woman in ink


I've had a number of failures lately of portraits of young women. I can't seem to get the proportions of the face right. I think it's because there are so few landmarks...no wrinkles or creases to divide up the face. You have to figure out where to put the eyes in all that blank space. And I always seem to make the nose too long. I did this portrait in ink and I'm fairly pleased with the proportions.
