The lips are perfect, All of my portraits look like aliens because i get frustrated with drawing the lips and so just leave them out.

/that's awesome, are the fairy lights drawn in, or are they laying across the page? If they're drawn in then they are SO realistic!

What did you use to smudge the charcoal?  You should try oil pastel, they are so fast and easy to blend, and ONLY ever use primary colours, they give best tones!

Found you through WOTO, realised you do art and made the channel and now I'm here on your dA. It's a strange cycle since I usually find people to watch on YT from other websites rather than the other way round xD
Anyhow, this is great! Love the fairy lights touch - presentation is the key with traditional art :) As for the drawing itself, charcoal is a fun but difficult medium to master and you're doing great! I do have a little bit of constructive criticism for the future though - soften the shadows between her ear and face slightly - they look quite harsh and make the ear look like it's floating a bit :)

This is awesome Liam :) also love how you've added the fairy lights, you're thinking outside the box (or outside the drawing ^.^) with your art. I'm not an artist myself, I just enjoy seeing other people's art. Also I genuinely really enjoy your Art Sketchbook videos, you've managed to make them really interesting and engaging for people who aren't necessarily artists rather than making us feel alienated by your content, so well done you. :D
