Hm...For that photo referenced drawing - spend more time with the line and get it as exact as possible before you do any shading otherwise it wont look good no matter how much shading or color you use. On the eyes try using a horizontal guide line to get them facing the same way and be on the same level. Just keep drawin!!
Heres some more stuff tryin to get it all down that way i can start postin new stuff
some of these are supposed to b refrences to MC Escher and theirs a painting to my dad in their he likes planes i think...
You have some nice stuff in here, and your heads are improving. Going along with what EtherRain and lewisaurus said, practice your anatomy, but don't just copy the muscles. I find The Human Machine by George Bridgeman a really good book for that. It talks about how the muscles work, and I think you should look into it. Once you have the foundations down, it'll easily translate onto the digital medium.
Thanks lewisaurous, evilbunny , maidith, the general concinsus im getting is that working on figure drawing and atom=nomy will pay off a lot and i think im gona take that advice iv been doing more loomis reading and studing peoples figures at school hope it pays off
And also heres the final pic of abby i sent in for the contest. enjoy
