 i think the shading above the left eye appears as if there is a  slight dent....

  Overall the drawing looks great Danielle..

 Danielle she is beautiful.  You have done an awesome job.  Still think you can blend our the white a fraction.   Then it will be perfection!

Absolutely beautiful Danielle. The only thing I see is that there is no different tonal value between the eyes and eyebrows, it appears to me to be the same as above the eyebrow. I think it might give her that slightly more sedate look that she has in the picture. Not forgetting that I have not ever done portraits before so Im no expert. Overall you drawing is magnificent. :clap: :clap:

Don't know how I missed this glorious little creature!!! What a mass of hair and Danielle you have done such a great job of drawing it! You have done a fabulous job of the whole portrait, in fact!! the only thing I would say, is look at her (our) left cheek. . . .there seems to be a line of dark shading where there shouldn't be one. . . .I see it in the photograph, but I think it needs to be feathered out more and blended into the value of her cheek.  What do you think?  I think you have captured the likeness so very well. . . . .you go girl!!!

PS: I think Sally has a point. . . . .

 :thankyou: Jill, Lisa Sally and Bev, I do so appreciate all you advice, it helps me better my drawing.
 :confused: Bev which white do you mean the same that Cyril mentioned, if so I have done that change, but I did not posted that correction yet. 
 :confused: Sally, what do you suggest I do for the white below the eyebrow, should I put a bit of shade right under the eyebrow?  There is a bit of shade but I guess it is not noticeable enough.
 :confused:Bev,  do you mean that little straight line about 1/4" from the left side of the mouth?
Thank you all so much.
Danielle

Sorry if ive confused you Danielle, I guess I mean that in the photo her eyelids are slightly darker and coming out of her eyelids up towards the eyebrow slightly, I don't know what that part is called. This will give a little more depth above the eye.

beautiful so far Danielle :clap: :clap: :clap:

the shading on the left hand side of her face must still come out further to show her rosy cheeks O0
