Tried to portray myself from a photo. Well, this could be my imaginary sister... similarity is around 70%. I drew this freehand, maybe the proportions are a bit different which causes the differences.
I think the jeans jacket has come out well.
As always, all comments are welcome.

Yes, Gita,  the jacket is so well done.
You are much prettier than this portrait, though; but it's a good try.

I think you've done a super job on your self portrait, Gita! Just need a little more definition in the hands. Your jean jacket is excellent - and your hair is outstanding!  :clap: :clap:
Cheers,

Cheers,
