    cartoon girl portrait

    So here's my latest effort at a head. I don't intend to change this one now but any errors you can so that I can avoid for my next one? (I know I really must practice hair)

    I think there might be a few construction issues that you could keep an eye on next time. The middle of her hairline and mouth seem to be slightly off the center line of the head. And maybe add some more depth/shadows to the ear, at the moment it looks quite flat.

    Thought this one was gonna slip through the net. Thanks a lot for your help. I couldn't agree more about the ear it has been bothering me too. Will definitely pay the ear more attention from now on. Also you're right about the construction issues too of course. I flipped the canvas after posting this (still not developed the habit) and saw the lips and hairline were problem areas. I've really hammered head construction this weekend though and finally realised today that I'd been finding the centre of the face totally wrong (amongst some other problems).

    Is there anything you would have done differently other than what you mentioned? Do you think anything works ok?

    Hmmm, I think most of the parts I would look at would be related to construction as it looks a bit flat.
    The hairline is quite angular and sticks out quite a bit as the rest of your image is made up of curves, this draws the attention away from the facial features so maybe keep that in mind?

    I do like the soft color palette though, and I like the way the nose was done, it has a nice depth :
