Afghan Girl by ~loaded88 on deviantART I know I may be late on commenting, but this is beautiful and I feel that it really comes the closest in capturing the feeling behind the original photo. I've seen quite a few attempts on sketches of the "Afghan Girl" (aka Sharbat Gula) and this is the only sketch that I feel comes the closest to capturing the conviction within her eyes, which is the factor that makes the photograph compelling and powerful.

This was my first time drawing a full sized paper and also my first time using a new kind of paper. Canson Bristol paper has very smooth surface which I loved working on, it felt easier to handl.
