    You can resize them in Photoshop (I think it is something like Image>Resize>Image Size or something).

    Not a bad start you have here if these are your first pieces in Photoshop. Since you asked for advice I would say to avoid soft edged brushes for now. They are harder to describe form with and leaves edges messy and soft (such as in the second picture).

    I would also recommend studying from reference (whether it be from life or a photo). Both of your portraits are suffering from many basic mistakes in construction and proportion, and working from reference will help to fix these problems as you learn the layout of the face. You can also work in black and white for now to better show the forms of the face as these are a little flat looking.

    Anyways, keep posting and you will improve really fast. You are also still in high school (I am too) which helps, so if you keep it up you will be great!

    thanks for the help! these pieces were more about learning how to handle photoshop's coloring/shading tools then actually creating a structurally accurate face, I'm not going to lie I kind of rushed through the outline part to get to the shading. oops =P anyway here's the re-sized images.

    i sincerely apologize for the bad quality, the scanner im forced to work with is terrible, but these are sketches I did working from Bridgeman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life. I will be posting a lot more soon.

    This next barrage of sketches is a lot more imaginative. The first one is a sketch of me (from the bathroom mirror,) the second picture is just a random made-up charcoal face, the third and fourth are more imagination drawings, the fifth picture has sketches I did from one of poussin's paintings, and all the rest of the pictures are sketches from my head (except for the last one, which is a pseudo-copy of the cover page of a book I like called "The Name of the Wind".)
    I'm not going to post this much at once regularly, the only reason I've done so this time is to put up some of the older sketches I have lying around in various sketchbooks. Now that I'm all caught up these updates should be a little less intimidating.
