    Critique needed

    Hello, hello,


    My name is Ida, I am not a new member on this site but this is my first time posting so I am kinda nervous
    My original field in art is textile design but as long as I remember I was interested in portrait art.
    I first started traditionally, cause I went to art school and pen was my best friend. A couple years ago I started painting everything digitally and now I need your help to improve my skills with your honest opinion and knowledge

    Draw from life. Seeing light interact with form is what you need. These are all suffering from a lack of good lighting.

    Not only values, but drawing from life will help with your accuracy. If faces are what you like to paint you could do your own self-portraits as practice.

    study planes of the head to understand effect of light on faces better and make sure all features track, for example on the second one lips are not set on the centre line

    Take care of the planes of the face to have volume in the drawing.

    Hi Ida,

    Personally, I am overwhelmed with your nice multiple pieces. I would show one or two for criticism request per.

    My favorite is 4th one down. It's challenging to draw underneath the jawline (heads looking up). It needs to show bottom jaw meeting the upper neck.
