This one of the girl in the hoodie jumps out to me as being obviously the most successful drawing! Nothing calls attention to itself, everything is convincing, cohesive, and coherent.
Why do you think this one works so well?
I don't know if you mean out of all my drawing or just my portraits, but if you like it more out of all my drawing I would say that possibly the simpler cleaner shading makes everything work together better rather than my normal shading and might be too busy.
As for all portraits well, it was my first one and I put more time into it. After the first one i wanted to see how fast I could do it. So of course it would end up more coherent.
Personally my favorite is Viatrix because it has that clean crisp feel, but still with the stylized flare I personally love. It most likely would have been better without the lighting I gave it, but I wanted to experiment.
Thank you for asking me that, it's interesting to think about my pieces like this, since I don't normally do so.
