what a great picture! I'll bet she loves it. I find faces pretty difficult to get really close to lifelike.

You show your nice drawing ability here. It is so challenging to draw faces. I love the eyes and also my favorite themes.

Nicely done!

There is some similarities with here daughter's pic - I love that age where their arms only reach up as high as their heads :).

Did you do your sister's picture from a sitting or from a photograph? The expression is complex and in transition - nicely capture - and the texture for the hair works really well.
