I used on this picture a combination of charcoal and colour pencils.
Thank you for the kind words

You might want to use highlights and shadows to give it depth.

I also agree with what DLeeG has mentioned. If you use shading and highlighting you will find that you will get more structure to the face. The drawing itself though is very good.

I really like your drawing, and although more highlights would give it more depth, you captured this girl's personality well.

You have a nice line! - But as mentioned, you should look further in to shadowing! Work with the shadows, the shadows are your friend:)

Like everyone has said...nice picture! More shading is needed as well as more colors...dont be afraid to experiment with your work. Getting a nice picture is just the first phase...the devil is always in the details;)

Backgrounds are as important as the subject, looks to me like the background here was an afterthought, it doesn`t do anything for the drawing in my opinion. Does it look like her? It`s not a bad drawing, keep working at it, takes time.
