Beautiful. The eyes have such fine detail they almost look blue.. you could leave it like this and call it complete. The high contrast makes it unique

I think you didn't noticed you can do it. You've just missed the train station :). Less shading between the nostrils, more black in the nostrils, a powerful detail and a full mouth, and a simple chinline with perhaps some stretches of subtle shades in the neck, pushing against the faceline. Little hair around the face that fades out to nothing and that shapes the face; you weren't too far away ;). Would have left the shades around the eyes and continued this butterfly-pattern in the neck. Perhaps a little in the cheaks...

A little hour or more would had done it I think...but what's an hour?

The nose seems to be following a direction of its own, but the shading is impressive! :wow:

Yes...I see that too. I am currently working on fixing that. I was a little reluctant to show the nose in its early stage.

Thanks Dirk!
hmm....Each one of her eyes are about 1 inch(2.54cm) wide. I am working on an 11 x 14" (26 x 36cm)size paper.

thanks Pat, that is pretty big for a portrait!

I'm looking forward to see the finished piece! Although it already looks finished as a high-key-portrait :-)

Dirk, I too am inspired by the art of Ileana Hunter :iconileanahunter:...She is amazing and I asked her if she would mind if I tried to do a portrait in HER style ( high contrast and minimal). She was very cool about it and I dont want to let her down.
