    Your lookin pretty good there...however I feel like there are a few drawing errors

    I think you should work on your lights and darks...in sketching, shading is key and I don't think you quite hit the mark yet.

    Your anatomy is great, but you should follow the picture more, I suggest maybe looking into grid drawing for good practice! It's a great way to learn shapes in the human anatomy.

    EDIT-
    the first photo is a great sketch! really good job

    The second photo is solid, however the darks are a little off, which kinda makes the drawing itself look a bit off without the photo. the nose isn't drawn quite to the photo, like the nose on your drawing is strait while the photo is more to the right. it's quite excellent without the photo, but I still think it needs a bit of work.

    The third needs a bit of work yet. the face is a bit off kiltered. I feel that the one thing that is throwing me off is the lips, did you draw the lips on or did you shade them is the one question I'd like to ask.

    Also, mixing media is quite challenging, especially ink and graphite. Graphite is a light medium while ink is very dark. for example, in the second photo, the ink on the right side makes the person look bald. Im not sure if that was what your going for, but that is what I interpreted.




    Peace to you!

    You do a wonderful job with the curls--it takes a lot of work to get those looking nice :) I would continue to work on the place of features on the face. You're getting better and better, but still a little off (I do the same thing quite often.)I guess an example might be to make the fore-head a little higher (not a lot, just a little,) and to work a bit on the left nostril (it's bigger than the right.)

    It's looking good, though! You can tell you've been working on it :) I love that hair *envious* I try curls, but I can't tell if I'm any good.

    You're doing well.. There is an advice I read somewhere: Draw things as they are, not as they are supposed to be.
    For example, a mistake that I've been doing was trying to make the eyes, ears and the whole face look symmetric. That's not the case with a real face; I mean, in real life faces are not 100% symmetric. Therefore, I have to draw things as they are, not as they are supposed to be.

    For the digital drawing, you're doing well to.. some practice on anatomy will help. Most of MT are working it including me ^^

    Have you ever read Burne Hogarth's Drawing the Human Head? If you haven't, I suggest you check it out because he explains a lot of how to draw faces and the rules you should keep in mind when drawing them from front view, side view, profiles, and so on. Keep practicing though - it seems like you're almost there. C:

    I don't even know how you did the watercolor painting, haha. It's looks awesome but I would have done a full body on it though.


    Keep up the good work!
