A portrait drawing of Rihanna I'v made and Its not that good .

I wanted to try this time to use colored pencils In a portrait and made alot of mistakes that needed to be fixed and that was really hard to fix.

The drawing was done with a mech pencil 0.5mm 2b
and STAEDTLER colored pencils.

well.... does It iven look like her ? ><"

I will be really pleased If you gave me some critique.

ok, let start at the top:
the hair: on the fringe it looks a good but there are some odd shading patterns perhaps adding some depth (darker areas) would help. At the sides down the side of her face the hair looks thin, as if she is standing in front of a white background again i think you need to add darker areas to the hair itself in order to stop this.
The open eye is good but the closed one is a little odd looking. with the hair on the fringe looking thin i would expect to see a lot more detail than is actually visible, as it is, it looks as if you have got bored or frustrated with drawing when you got to this eye and just given up on trying.
For future, as a tip, draw the hair in last of all. draw all the facial features in, have a complete face and THEN draw the hair in. I realize this may have come from reference but part of doing an image like this is picking the right reference and being willing to alter it in some ways.
the lips are good but you have been a little heavy with the shading on the wrinkles on the upper lip, soften those up a bit to give it a slightly more glamorous look.
There is a shaded line which passes from her right nostril, this should really pass much closer to the corner of the lips.
and finally the jaw line which passes up on her right. i feel as if it is a little low and should be raised up a bit, though not too much.

I hope this helps and to answer your question YES it does look like Rihanna, i knew it was her instantly. This is a good piece of work, well done and keep it up.

(first time I'm doing this)

I think you've done an outstanding work with the lips and eyes. You've managed to deliver the form and material perfectly.
Great capturing of the light in the eye and the barely noticeable eye bag.
Beautiful job on the lips! the colors are amazing and details seem to be you strongest point.
Now about the critique I would say that you have neglected the hair a little. It would have been more in the nature of the drawing if you had payed more attention to the hair and given it a more soft and silky feeling.
And also the skin could have used more richness in colors.

Ok so that's just my opinion don't kill me. :) I don't even know if I'm in the position to write a critique about your work 'cause you're much more talented than me. Just thought I'd try once...

If it makes you feel any better, I immediately thought it was Rihanna before I even saw the title. You got her facial features down pat. The only problem I see is that you drew the lips slightly too far up her face. Other than that, perfection.

I think you did a great job, the color is nicely blended and the glare in the eyes is amazing. i think you can practice more with the hair in front of the eyes on the left, her right eye. its not as distinct as the rest of the picture

you may say its not good but I think its brilliant! :D though in my opinion the hair needs a few more strokes to define it a little more and to get rid of the white parts, I think the mouth was done particularly well, the eye looks awesome and the skin texture seems to be spot on ^^ so overall really good! :D

Overall it's good. I would recognize her from this picture and I'm not a fan of hers -- I've just seen other pictures of her. My impression is her skin tone is a little darker than you've made it, but otherwise, it's well done. Colored pencils are very unforgiving -- they don't erase well at all. You certainly don't have anything to feel bad about regarding this portrait.
