The Statue of Liberty

I got my 1040 tax forms today (what a special feeling), anyway, I saw the statue of liberty there on the front, and new I had to draw it. Here are the results of my humble attempt:

It really was quite a special feeling trying to draw the statue. I hadn't realized all the detail and expression in it before. There really is a lot to the face. It was inspiring, made me wish I could draw better.

I remember reading in the book that drawings can be created using shading alone, with no outline, and well, this is also my first drawing with that technique.
