Graphite Portrait Commission of Daughter - Refining the Features

I am still refining her features and building up the values to create shape.  Still a fair ways to go to soften her features and get the full likeness but she is starting to take shape. 

Her lips still look too tight but they should soften up by the next update once I fill out the facial shadows around them and soften the edges. 

Her hair is really starting to take shape and there will be little dark flowers on the barrette and I will tone it down a bit even though it is white as I don't want it stealing the focus off of her face.

WOW wonderful work! I really luv the hair,and she indeed looks like a little girl who's full of life and personality. Can't wait to see the progress on the next update.
