I decided to do a "serious" portrait of Thavi -- same basic outfit, though with some personal adornments. The things in her hair are beads and the end that look like tassels are her hair that has been bleached (I might color this eventually, so in that case, the ends would be dyed red). There are a total of seven forming a "V" if you look from behind. She has an identicle armband on her right upper arm.
I drew this using a 0.5 mm mechanical pencil with HB lead, a 6B graphite stick, various blending and shading tools, on Georgia-Pacific's "Everyday Copy & Print" paper.
