Hello Shonda, Looking at the work itseft. It looks as though you have some fair drawing skills. And what I mean by fair is this. The things you need to work on are the details. mostly with the eyes. But I think your off to a good start. You do have some skills. And with a little work I think you could get good at what your trying to do. Keep working. And the site will allow larger photos. 600x600 would be a good size to shoot for. You should have some kind of photo program that you can work with your photos. And remember this. Color and details are what builds a good painting.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.
