    Snow White

    Hello!

    I am still learning how to paint and all that, I feel like this one came out pretty good, worked on it on and off for about a week. I feel like somethings off with the face. I cant put my finger on it. C&C is appreciated.

    The overall anatomy is wonky (detached shoulders, neckboob, lack of finger joints) and the form/structure doesn't adhere to the established lightsource. Google for "planes of the face". If the light is coming from the front, her ear won't be lit like the light would be coming from the viewer's direction.
    Also, what is she doing? I mean she's clutching the apple but then she also has this weird expression, like she's burping. Is she supposed to have mean intentions, or has she at this point bitten the apple and is mid-dying? It just doesn't seem to have much context.

    As it was already said:

    ah dang, Ive been trying to work more on anatomy, but I will continue to continue working on that I suppose. Its tough! Ive been reading through the super basics, as in the figure drawing by loomis, is there anything else you could reccomend me to read? I feel like I am not making enough progress.

    As for what I was trying to portray, I was hoping to get across like a contemplative moment before she took her bite, and she's letting out a sigh.

    I know the expression is weird, but I just dont know how to fix it. :'(

    Thanks for the comments TinyBird.

    And I trust that you also have been doing the studies and copying the drawings from the book too? Just reading it won't cut it. Same as studying to put the methods and understanding from the book to drawing real humans. How much time do you spend doing life drawings?
    Get a proper photo reference, shoot your own if you have to.

    Well, that seems kinda dramatic for eating one apple. I mean when you eat an apple, thinking that it's just an okay apple, do you stare into the distance and give out sighs? I mean if she knew that apple was going to kill her, it'd make more sense, and though the viewer knows it, having the character to seemingly react to that doesn't necessarily work that well.
