As mentioned this was supposed to be a little exercise on focus/blending  while trying a different skin technique. 
The topknots were almost missing on my reference, so I had to wing it. Thanks for looking =]

Thank you very much! I'll have to blur her left side a bit though, it's way too sharp!

Such a beautiful drawing. I like the small touch of adding blur to the dress straps at the top and the hair.

Ya know what's funny? I always come across amazing work, but am a lazy fart that doesn't comment...pretty much at all. But whenever I come by your work, even after seeing all these wonderful pieces by other artists... I feel I need to log in and comment, cause your work just blows my mind. I've been inactive for so long, but this is very inspiring..you are by far one of my most favourited artists :)

Really really beautiful. Would you ever mind if I took these into photoshop and added color to them? I don't think I'd ever post em anywhere, but just to see like how realistic they already are.

looks perfect, love the eyes. The sharpness/unsharpness is well achieved and I think it's a good thing the left side of her face isn't more blurry....it's great as it is :)
