I really like this! The way she's framed is really nice, how she become the top and left border for the artwork. It reminds me a little bit of Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss" in the way that she is in a rectangular space.

Looking at this sketch reminds me of an actress from a movie but I can't seem to know who. I love how this person sketches this beautiful woman, in a position of wrapping her arm around her knee toward her chest when she is sitting down. Her body language shows that she feels desperate for attention or she feels lonely in a dark situation. I feel like there is a story behind this character but I can't seem to figure it out. This sketch show does show a lot of details. I could see this sketch as a book cover of a story about this woman.

This is such a beautiful picture. The word "sketch" doesn't seem to fit it because of how finished it feels.
