Bargue Plate 45

Looking over the shoulder of the Capitoline Ariadne. I learned that this plate is an example of a lost profile. The temptation is to turn it into a profile by making the features more prominent. This is my most successful line drawing yet; after finishing the line drawing I applied the tracing paper and found only the back of the head was off by 1 or 2 mm. The weird hair was surprisingly easy to render given its intricacy.
