Creative Portraits: Same girl pencil sketch

okay, i really love this photo of my friend's daughter so much that i wanted to take a stab at a pencil sketch -- it's kind of a pencil/smudge look, i guess -- there's currently another thread going on that inspired me -- this is my first attempt at something like this -- am i heading in the right direction? i know, her ear needs work - lol.

feel free to have a go at her -- i'd love to see what others could do with her.

christine, i like the sketch and really love the painting -- i am going to attempt a painting one of these days -- can i ask what you used to get the perfect canvas texture background -- i have a couple of filters that just don't look that great.

The canvas is Artist Canvas - one of the Painter paper textures.

I realize this isn't a pencil sketch so forgive me for going in a different direction.

cobra1972 nice pencil sketch.

lQQker also nice interpretation -- gave her a sinister, dark look; i like it.

Beautiful girl. I certainly hope she is modeling.

Here are two interpretations. One color and one greyscale. I prefer the color one, but you asked for a sketch. So here are both.
