Drawing of the week. (Linda, who doesn't actually exist)

Another practice of drawing women's faces. This isn't based on anyone or any photograph it's just a drawing from nothing. I'm not that great at women's faces, and most of them end up looking effeminate men, so I'm practicing. The holy grail of drawing a woman's face is to draw one that is totally bald. The hair is to much of a visual cue and distracts from real female facial features. This one looked pretty good bald so I added hair. I also got sick of naming files like practice_female_portrait_2, so I named this one Linda. The first name that popped into my head.
