    Hi , welcome here.
    I like your watercolour portraits ! Nice use of colour there (just my opinion)
    if u want a crit i'd say you should do more careful in your 3/4 portraits view . your last mouse maybe need a line construction first before moving to the details .
    Keep posting ))
    (excuse my english)

    Hi Charlie D, nice start.
    Your portraits are very creative, especially your use of colour.
    However, your still lifes are more accurate than the portraits so it might be a good idea to try to draw people from real life (or photographs) rather than from imagination. Your third portrait (man with hood) has a great atmosphere but if he didn't have a hood on a good chunk of his head would be missing.
    Maybe you could draw from anatomy books to master the features/proportions of the head.
    Good luck and keep up the good work!

    Hey! Nice start to your sketchbook!
    The last one looks a bit flat, adding some stronger shadows would help bring the form out more.
    I agree with JetLime's comment. Work more from life and focus on the proportions of the head.
    Keep posting!
