Portrait Challenge #4 Ink Portrait

Here is another attempt a portrait.  This is my older step-daughter, now in the military, on the day of her high school graduation (no idea who the guys is).  I really have trouble with mouths and teeth, it’s quite evident!  The thing about working with ink is once the line is down, there’s no erasing it, so you’re stuck.  I should probably work more in pencil to start, something slightly more forgiving, even if I consciously try not to erase.  My boys make it difficult to practice these drawings lately like I originally wanted to.  Never the less I’m trying!  Ultimately I’d like to be able to start rendering in colored pencil.
