I love this! How did you bring out the white highlights in the black hair in her ears?

Hi Chris,
I think I used Stabilo Carb-o-thello pastel pencil nos. 110 and 720 which are both light greys. The 110 is the lighter of the two, which is almost a white.

Hello Deb. What a beauty! I agree with some of the comments here. The nose is perfectly moist, the eyes are lovely and the hair is very well done. (I struggle with hair - but perhaps I simply need to slow down to get the right result). Great job. Thanks for sharing.

I am truly impressed, Deb. Beautiful detail throughout. Excellent color choices. The expression in the eyes is really great, really brings out some of the character.
