first study... DONE!!!!

So this is the first study for the ballerina painting, and i must say... what a bitch (the the girl the drawing). I drew her face 5 times! But thats all part of the process. Honestly, its due to three reason. 1. Her face is turned slightly to the left so it is barely straight on or 3/4 and that subtle turn and her subtle expression was hard to capture, 2. her the camera distortion, and 3. we as artists all have tendencies to draw things a certain way. Mine is that I always elongate figures because im a tall skinny guy. Anyways, to finally combat this, I used a grid. Yet I still hate it because I feel like its off.
