29 Faces (Day 13) - Fall Girl

 
Fall is almost here!  I love fall colors and cooler air - it is so nice to wake up in the morning and the temp is in the 60's - whoo hoo!!  The quote is from F. Scott Fitzgerald.  A girl with a ponytail seemed like a good idea but something isn't quite right about her. . .
This girl is definitely an "upside down" kinda girl.  I think she looks super cute upside down - her nose/eyes looks better from this angle.  In fact, that is the way I like to look at pictures of myself but with one added step.  I am an "upside down from a distance" kinda girl.  I usually look pretty good when I hold a picture of myself at arm's length upside down while I am squinting my eyes.
I also like her cropped down tight.  She's colored with pencils and I need lots more practice trying to shade and make smooth skin color.
Check out all the faces this month on Ayala Art.

I like her every which way. I love that you are trying so many different styes during this challenge. The thing I find interesting is that (except for Manga girl), they all look a little like you -- very pretty! Maybe you have a Scandinavian princess in your ancestry!

I think she is dynamite good.
Now if I could perfect that upside down look added to my not with glasses on look in the mirror in the morning I'd have it made! See you over at PPF tonight!

I think she's perfect, upside down, right side up, and cropped in tight. Lovely work! I love her eyes, beautiful!

Hihi, I'll have to try that upside down at arm's length squinted look at a picture of myself ;-)
About your girl: either way you hold her, I think she looks great!
