    Need help with anime faces.

    Hello I've only been seriously drawing since around november 20th so I'm still a complete beginner. However I can tell that the faces look off somehow and I'm not quite sure why.

    I suggest you study head construction, as in In particular, pay attention to how eyes fit into a sphere, while yours seem to accommodate a flat face.

    You'll be able to see what is off if you hold the drawing up to a mirror or flipping the image. I found life drawing to be the most useful when drawing anime characters. It's easier to stylize the human form once you know how it's properly constructed and proportioned.

    Draw from life or even photographs before you get into stylization. You need to become at least adept at realism before you want to try doing any stylization.
