Drawn on August 4th
This is my second portrait on that day (to compensate for the fact that I missed a few days, I tried to do more than one drawing on others).
One of my main struggles this year, you will notice, is hair. Hair is time consuming to do, and I find it hard. And since my focus will be mostly on faces and expressions, for some portraits the hair is only sketched out. Maybe I make next year's challenge about hair :)
