Attempt at Ink, Female Head

Well this weekend on my streak of inspiration I decided to ink a drawing this time. I still have plenty of cardboard sheets left and since they are pretty thick I know I didn't have to worry about the ink seeping through or leaving it soggy. The first picture shows the pencil layout and the progress of the ink and the bottom shows the final piece. I did attempt a little bit of the washing the ink to add some lighter tones but for some reason didn't work out so well as I hoped in the end. I still like it with this being my first atempt of using India Ink and a brush. I also added a little bit of white to add some highlights to the lips. Females is another one of those things that have never been my strong point, to me they always seem to come out too masculine and my eyes just can't seem to get them right. With this I just accepted my abilities and went with it. I really like how the small strands of hair came out though, I am going to attempt at least one or two more female drawings hopefully by the end of the weekend.  Also note that I didn't use any type of model or reference for the female, just did it off the top of my old noggin.
