I have a hard time drawing faces and hair so I made this drawing as practice, any suggestions on how I could improve?
If you're having trouble drawing something my suggestion would be to go draw it from life (or at the least photo reference) - for instance. Say I've never drawn a monkey in my life. It stands to reason that I'm going to have trouble doing a decent drawing of a monkey unless I have a picture or a live monkey to refer too.
I don't know if you had reference when drawing this but my guess would be that due to the proportional inconsistencies with real life (i.e. people don't have eyes that big in general), you probably did this from imagination?
Post a smaller picture please.
I did it from imagination, maybe I should be using reference more, Thanks for the response
Oh yeah and I will try to post a smaller picture next time. I joined conceptart yesterday and I'm still trying to get the hang of how the site works
Adding to the crits from Love, When you're drawing a portrait try to keep the thing in bounds of the sheet, nothing worse then pictures with people's legs cut off (so to speak).
There are also ways of constructing faces/skulls via the Rielly projection and Asaro planes, but doing it from reference a lot first is a good idea like Love already said.
I'm definitely going to look into Rielly projection and Asaro planes, looks fun and I could use some dimension in my drawings thanks for the advice!
I don't know what you mean by "When you're drawing a portrait try to keep the thing in bounds of the sheet, nothing worse then pictures with people's legs cut off"?
When posting pictures what seize do you reccomend me posting in? and is there a way to change the seize of pictures I have already posted?
Actually quite a good idea. I was using ctrl+scroll...
Dylf : I'd recommend posting something that can be viewed completely on a modest screen. Usually it's mostly part of presentation and I get the feeling people posting oversized paintings sometimes get less critique. It's not that much of a problem to be honest.
I will try shrink my picture next time, I was actually annoyed by the seize my self, but I didn't know how to change it when it was uploaded. So next time it will be a more appealing seize
