    Help me ascertain awesomeness

    First time post(er)

    I'll start off by saying that I can't draw faces ...like at all. Anyone have any words of wisdom? Tutorials? Insightful critiques? I take criticism well so don't hold back. Like I said, I'm new around here. If you guys want to draw over my stuff, draw arrows, write helpful doodads, it would be greatly appreciated. Anatomy, overall design, recommended next steps, and anything else that is wrong. Oh yea, jeans. I can't draw jeans or wrinkles in clothes very well.

    I was going for a Irish rocker (lead singer). I can include the silhouette if you would like to see it.

    Is it normal to post the same work in three different forums? (critique, sketch, and work in progress)

    For faces, I'd say just practice, practice, practice. Use some focus pieces to help. I'm liking how this guy is turning out, keep it up!

    i'd suggest doing a lot of life drawing, try to do a lot of self portraits to help you get better at faces, maybe also try and draw at least 1 portrait per day. i'd strongly recommend picking up some books from either loomis of bridgman, both are amazing books for ref and how to learn better anatomy/faces. (bridgman is better for musculature and advanced anatomy, loomis is better for facess and for being able to construct simpler figure structures. hope this helps

    To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.
