    Yeah, you'd have to COMPLETELY redo parts of the painting to make it work. I wasn't referring to cropping on the painting, more like :

    - Measure the dimensions of the canvas
    - Sketch on paper
    - Draw a frame into your sketch with the dimensions of the canvas to "crop"
    - Transfer that sketch over to your canvas.

    To transfer a sketch to canvas, you could use an overhead projector or the good ole' grid method: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...&postcount=123

    And don't be embarrassed! I bet you're learning tons and hopefully you'll get a much better end result out of it!

    Yeah, okay I see what you mean.

    I think I am going to start over, though I may distance myself from this piece so I can attack it with anew head of steam. Just for future reference, what part specifically of the face am I messing up on, and needing to watch out for in the future?

    Ummm, lots of things, but it'd be more beneficial to see you try your hand on a full head/face construction and see if we can help you out with that. You made a lot of mistakes in this that I'm sure you wouldn't make if you start out the "right way", full head construction and don't obscure the face with hands and such.
