This is AMAZING. I wish i had your skill! I love the detail in the face and I can never do freckles. The shading in the hair and the slight messiness is very realistic. Something that could use a little work are the things like the hair ties in the braids, but thats all i can see.

(Now I guess you probably have improved because this was made in 2004, but meh...)

This is beauty on paper. Feeling the moment, wishing and believing, and knowing in your heart it can come true, that's what art is too, and that's what dreams are made of.
