would it be alright if i did a painting and do the face in sort of the same minamalistic style and post it on DA if i give you crdit and have a link to your work as you being one of the artists that influences it.
I am a big fan of yours. @Faedynne is right. The way you doge outlining the sketch gives it a mystical and very much so eerie realness. There are no lines in the sketch...just shading. That delivers something more important than looking like the subject...it delivers the subject's presence. The eyes and brows attract the attention of the drawing, but the flowing hair, shaded neck, and smooth shoulder bring her to life. Keep drawing...you are meant to be noticed.
