    How about you work out on fixing that face instead?

    I might, but It's only a sketch. I'd rather do some hair on it at the moment..

    If it's only a sketch, why have you started rendering it already? No need to add details to the ear if everything is in the wrong place and you haven't sketched out the hair.
    Everything in the face is lopsided, proportionally questionable (like you drew what looks like an eye line in the middle of her head, but then drew the eyes on top of the line?) or just plain wrong. People don't have ears growing sideways next to their eyes.

    Go and read the Loomis books: http://alexhays.com/loomis/ to learn something about structuring the head/face and get some photoreference.

    Only a sketch? If you think like that, you aren't going to learn very fast. Focus on fixing the problem before you, before making a slew of new ones on top of it. It's obvious you don't truly understand the planes and such of the face. So I suggest you learn them.

    Get a photo ref, a book, etc.

    (And by planes, I mean this )

    You are completely missing the whole point of sketching. Sketches are a cheaper way to solve construction problems. Ignoring the problems won't make them go away. Dismissing them as "just a sketch" does not make them smaller. Insisting on finishing a sketch that has poor construction is an outright waste of time.

    You have a lot more to worry about here than the hair. Get a pencil and a pack of printer paper and practice construction drawing.

    I tend to agree with the guys, make yourself better and push to make more correct images. I think you'll find that its a lot more satisfying in the long run.

    Most people around here pull loomis out of thier hats like old time cowboys pull a gun, so why break with tradition here you go mate.

    follow this link and it takes you to a site where you can download "Andrew Loomis's" books in the .pdf format, there's figure drawing, atatomy drawing and loads of other things (including hair!).

    Its a great place to start and really helpful, I really hope this helps you out mate all the best.

    but i agree with others, even if it's only sketch you should work first on propotions

    sketch is a base for further steps

    cheers.

    seriously man have a look at those .pdf 's they are a gold mine and all your immediate problem solutions are in there, if you like them and want them they are starting to reprint and sell them online at titan books.

    all the best mate and dont give up!!
