    Hey, welcome to CA. Feels good to take the plunge, eh?

    One thing I notice in your face study there, is that while your proportions are pretty much correct except for a couple of small things, is it feels kind of flat. If you pay attention to the planes of the face, you'll fix that pretty quick. You can reference for the planes of the face (and lots of other useful things!) here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/501782/And...Head-and-Hands

    And the proportion problems I mentioned before are that the eyes are a bit too small, and the brows are a bit too high.

    But it's a good start! Keep at it!

    the last post was a great improvement on the previous figures you posted, so much more movement and character- much more interesting to look at. What kind of ref did you use, if any?

    As for your portrait drawings, try drawing a variety of views, e.g. side, back, low angle, high angle etc. you may get more of a sense of the masses of the head and features that way and things will look a little less flat.

    Keep posting

    One before i head out today. From imagination. I really gotta start watching out for my values. Really whacked and looks too airbrushed.
