because a lots of people show portrait drawings they obtained by transfering the outline of a photo... And as I noticed some differences between your drawing and the original, which is very nice indeeed, I saw that you didn't cheat.
oh, you mean tracing? i used to do it too when i first started learning how to draw because i was so frustrated with the result of my previous drawings. and yeah,when comparing my drawing to the original, it is very different! it's like two completely different person, but i'll improve myself in the near future. thank you for your wonderful comment!! it really means a lot to me!
