    I see that you are practicing form with your first couple of sketches. Understanding how facial features connect with the rest of the face will keep your portrait from looking like they have pasted on features, so keep working on that.

    Shading is difficult. Don't give up.

    Seems like you've spent some time on that one! That's the right way to do it, pal. Always thinking about refining your art piece is what push us into more and more study! Don't stop! hehe

    A tip about it:
    I couldn't precisely tell where you light source is. Maybe we got some diffuse light as in daylight? ^^
    I think some rendering studies using different lightsources would really be useful to your improvement. There are several tutorials over here, make sure u see em all
    aaand keep drawing!

    Well I don't know either where the source of the light is. =D I need to pay more attention to that. When I draw portraits it's a lot easier to understand and see where the light and where shades will be, but when i draw something with lot of details it's a bit confusing.
    And thank u 4 your advise, I'll make this my homework 4 today =D

    Hello!

    Lovely few posts here already. Am I right in thinking that you have been drawing for a while? Even if not, you have good hand-eye coordination going on and a lot of the features look right - very nice start. One thing I'd advise immediately, having seen how you draw faces, is to look up all that stuff about structuring a face (ears at the level of nose on the curve, same size, perspective, etc - you may have come across this stuff). It would really help to have some idea where things are, traditionally (people are obviously all different) - it will get rid of the whole 'nose too big, eyes different sizes' issue in a flash.

    Also, on the last post - I don't think her arms are too wide, but she does have shoulders missing :-) . When drawing, try putting your pad up against something and walking away from it a couple of meters. It helps to change perspective and notice irregularities. Can also try turing the drawing up side down and looking (but I haven't tried that myself).

    Keep posting and enjoying art,

    Best of wishes!

    Thanks. Well yea, I drawing for a long time already, but I wasn't drawing very often, 1 time in 2 mouths maybe. Now I really want to learn, I like do it so...trying to do my best.

    I know basics about face proportions, but I always forget to pay attention to that when trying to draw from photo. I think, just need more practice ;-)

    Already doing that =) thanks =) and I don't think turning picture upside down will help. At least to me.

    some skulls...
