    so i have a problem, and it's mostly her face among other things, but yeah, mostly the angle of her face and her eyes are bothering me a lot
    if anyone could show me how to fix her face, that would be grand, thanks!

    Hmm her face looks okay to me. Something might be off and I just can't see it.

    I'm more concerned about her arms - I'm not sure they are foreshortened correctly. Her right upper arm looks like it's extremely short. The extra cloth on her left arm makes it looks like her left arm is attached too close to her chest.

    The colors are great though, it's coming along really nicely

    hi! thanks for replying. (am i even replying the right way? no idea)

    her face is weird to me, her ear is too high, sure, but her eyes seem to be off? like, not on the right "plane" or angle of her face?

    and do you think you could show me for her arms? i've messed around with her arms so much i just don't know what to do anymore to be honest.

    This is a pretty nice looking piece overall but her body seems to be twisting in ways that it can't. It's also really difficult to tell what her actual intent is in this moment. If you work that out I think you'll be able to pinpoint any issues with the anatomy and fix them.

    The tangent between her chin and her shoulder pad is really distracting.

    First thing - the piece has a really cool flow/gesture to it and that counts more than anatomy IMO.

    Now, about the face - it's the nose that makes it look weird. The whole face is drawn so as to be seen from below the chin but the nose is drawn at generic eye level. Also the ear is too damn high - since she is looking up, it's not aligned horizontally with the eyes anymore.

    Nevertheless, a really cool piece - keep at it!

    now the tangent is bothering me, but i finished this a week ago, and it's too late to go back now.

    she's in the middle of an attack, KFAnderson

    thanks!

    ill admit, facials anatomy is the hardest for me to grasp, but i finished this piece over a week ago... i wish i got this advice before then, but i appreciate it nonetheless so thank you.

    im in the middle of a new one now, and if you could help me out with that one instead, that would be great!
