Thought I'd try another True Grit character; Mattie Ross.  I definitely blew my time limit on this one.  I had to cast about to find the likeness, and I messed with gesso here and there, both black and white, which makes for some cool texture and gives some tooth for the colored pencil to grab onto, but starts becoming more painting than sketch.  

I'm pretty blown away by Hailee Steinfeld.  The other tough guy characters not only come to respect her but want her admiration.  To pull that off, you need a little more than, well, Kim Darby peevishness. I'm sure we'll see a lot more of her.
