The outside line of the nose on that last one might be better with the purple colour you used on the cheeks. Try it in PS first.

That annoyed me. Why hasn't any one encouraged you in that direction before? Without design even the best rendered pictures in the world would do nothing. It takes an inner eye to see it and you have it. It doesn't get taught in books because it's either there or not. Sure I've read some fine high-faluting writing on it, but that's not what art is about - we are not machines or computers would be doing it. Keep feeling it and go with it.
I forgot to reply to comments Black Spot - Well, thanks for the encouragement! Now that I think about it...I was never really encouraged to do much in school at all. I was a pretty average student, not judged by my effort but there were many more talented students than I. So, I guess that's why.
Swampdigger - No problem and thanks for stopping by!
LtPlissken - Aww, thanks. I'm glad my little sketchbook make you feel happy.
