    Hi. I took a look at both of your pieces--it`s about where I am studying right now, so maybe I can give some descent critique.

    1) The Head looking away. This is an interesting pose. I think that the general proportions are okay but the focus should be on the form of the face. An anatomy focus on the skull will help in honing that. The picture is a little small so it is hard to tell for sure, but the nose needs a bit more definition, too. Break it down into chunks so you are not overwhelmed. My suggestion is start with teh whole skull, then move on to regions. Drawing just the skull itself will help you break each region into parts so that you can give the face more fullness and depth, and it really helps in placing the lines.

    2) The eyes is really difficult. I am still studying it. What I have seen is that the eye lid falls a certain way over the eyeball. The fold will always be at the top of the eyeball and lid itself wraps around it. Try practicing just eyes. Find various photographs of an eye looking in various positions, not the shape and texture of the lines. Eyelashes don`t just flow from the line that signifies the end of the eyelid. It is actually a little more up--this was an interesting point I learned.

    Of course, this is not hard-set. This is just what I noticed and what I have learned. Hope it helps and keep drawing!

    Take some time and try measuring distances with your pencil.

    Hey.

    Looking good so far.

    Start a sketchbook thread and just post all your stuff there, you'll get alot more advice on general stuff.
    Your work is looking good right now, my advice would be to make sure you do a fair amount of drawing from mind and make sure you enjoy all of this and not get too carried away with the whole becoming pro thing.

    Also, find a couple of things that inspire you, Artist, Books etc and really follow in their footsteps, sure at first you might be a copy of their style but it gives you a direction, inspiration, motivation to become as good and later on you'll move onto your own style with solid foundations and knowledge.

    Have fun and keep at it
