This is very good. Keep practicing and you will soon be where you envision yourself. You're off to a GREAT start.

Other than the dark lining around the eyes I think she looks great :)

Gaspare - Just some quick suggestions - I used Airbrush. The eyes are always the key - They do not have a hard line, just high contrasts.

Sometimes good stuff takes time, especially when you are new to it and just learning. I think you've made a terrific first attempt here. I really like your drawn detailing, and you've done some good shading on the face and clothing also. I think Skylar's airbrushing has helped -- we newbies haven't had a chance to explore so many of the tools yet.

Hello Gaspare,
don't know why but your work caught my attention.
As Skylar suggested, use Airbrush. Is great for portrait work (i find it the best). I had a quick look at your work and yes, you have to work more on the eyes, you need to give the impression of round. I've done a quick retouch of your painting (hope you don't mind, if so then i will delete this post). The hair... i would not touch that, i think is great.
(tools: airbrush, pencil and palette knife)
P.S. i'm still trying to learn AR3

thanks a lot to all of you :)
I give more attention to eyes, use more airbrushing and no more comic hard inkinkig :)
Monicka84 I think that always is better show than say :)

then take care of eyes:)

..... no more comic hard inkinkig ....

Those are not rules, only suggestions. Experiment with tools to see which one suits you best.
I tend to go more for photo-realistic drawings and that is why i would not use hard inking.
