A comission for a colleague. She had been looking for someone, who would draw a picture of her daughter for her, for two years.
It turned out she had someone like that, right next to her, at work. So i'm glad that she's glad. B, 2B,and 9B pencils on A3

Actually - if I look at this child, I am pretty sure, that I can read from her face, as if I had her here, sitting in front of me in reality...
As a becoming teacher, I just know rather quick a lot about children. I have some pictures how she would be like, when she'd be working in my classroom...
very close to reality... well done

thank you for the comment. Its very sweet how you explain things from your point of view. your words have a great value to me and I admire your work as a teacher, not many people can find the courage in them selves to take on this demanding proffession. I cant really say how she would behave, because I dont actually know this child, but I guess she would be a good student i your class. Her mom told me she is one of the brightest in shcool. the picture was taken on her 6th birthday, but on the drawing she looks more like 8 or 9, for some reason peaople always turn out looking a bit more mature on drawings. Im glad you like it. take care.

Well, I would guess, that she would be a quite working child, quite patient, when she is finished before others, waiting for me to look at her work, accepting and understanding, that I first explain things to other, more struggeling pupils. I can imagin, that she would be someone, I could just send to do something, not bothering, if it is about to be done, or if I will have to check.
I suppose, that I would work with her to get to a point, where she takes opportunities on her own and challenge herself. I suppose that she is very well in doing things, somebody asks her to, but maybe not in asking herself, what she would like to :)

I know - very wild guessing :P

this might aswell be pretty truthful.. my first guess, when I was looking through photos, was that she learns to play piano and there it was, a photo with her playing a piano :).. but yeah I totally agree that there is a docile and inquisitive look on her face.

what subjects do you teach? Or are teaching basic things, like primary school things?

I teach all the primary school subjects from 1st to 6th grade exept French.
I usually say, that I teach life :) That's my aim... :)
Yeah, I can imagine her playing the piano as well :)

Realy nice gallery! Love the soft subtle way of shading, you might push yourself a lit further to realy put attention on the structure that is going on in the face. It realy would create more depth. But you are realy good in making eyes look so beautiful and in a smooth transition from the one shade to the other one. You're quite exceptional as well, keep it up! ;)

I'm still learning each day, sometimes the answers realy lay in your own hands. Just experiment around, you'll see you that you can discover new things by just messing around a bit ;). Otherwise look for 5 pencil method on youtube, that guy realy has opened my eyes as well.
