My first attempt at drawing a portrait . . .

In class this week we are pairing off and drawing our partners. This is my first attempt. Her nose is too long and it throws off the proportions of the face. I was sitting with my pad in front of me when I really needed it to be on an easel. I was also using a med. charcoal pencil when I probably should've used a softer one. It was hard to blend out the charcoal lines on the shadows. This is not a complete picture but what I was able to capture in my 20 mins. of drawing time.
