    Well done on the coloring! You could have darkened areas of the hair up (braids, top left), but over awell done.


    There's a few areas that looked to have morphed a good amount, but I am not certain if you were concerned about that. The eye shape, distance eyes to from eyebrows, and mouth shape.
    My commentary is a gift to you.

    Unfortunately it’s not a super flattering angle, but I notice you did a good job with the subsurface scattering and bounce lighting. The red from the skin is really pulling through. Good job

    I think you need to reconsidered the eyes, which should be a lot more slanted because of the upward camera angle. Next study, shoot yourself a better reference, where light and shadows explicitly model the form in space.

    thanks everyone! I totally agree about the reference photo not being the best. It was just something I hade that where I liked the colors. I have a really hard time drawing facial features from below and I should work on my eyes from different angles.
