    i like the portrait so far. Try using some more saturated colors in some of the tones.

    This is as far as I got today. There is something wrong about the face that I can't seem to fix right. I'll make the shading a bit softer later on, but I did this with the hardedged round brush only for practice.(the hair is airbrushed) Oh and if you were wondering, I drew this from my mind and not from reference. Hard to find girls with white hair thes days...

    My trial version of photoshop has ended . I've grown pretty atached to it in those 30 days. I've already had painter, so now I'll probly have to try open canvas I guess.

    Looking good. Some things you can do is tighten up the structures of the face but not so much since it's a female. The nose looks a bit flat. The part under the hair should be darker and some of your edges are too soft in some area and too hard in others. You're coming along nicely though and its good to see that. Paintover later if you want it.

    Omg open canvas is sweet! If I'm not mistaken it has a different zooming system than photoshop. It allows you paint smaller than a pixel, how cool is that. This is how the image is comming along. The skin is smoother now, the I haven't changed the hair and body yet. Now how do I get the nose to look les flat? And do you mean I should cut off a little piece of her face just below her right cheek? I'll draw the shadows of the hair after I finished the hair itself. And I think I'll have te define the shape of her body better before I can make the hair from realistic. And before I go do that I'll have to do some practise scetches of the female figure ^^

    errm less flatness? thinking 3d, think of planes and use the foreshortening rule.
    the planes will be usefull because then you can easily put your shadow that shows the volume. that's it.

    btw you can blend the skin with opencanvas by using the watercolor tool and put the three bars to their maximum =)

    Your drawings are showing great improvement Zheng. I agree with boogie, your anime/manga stuff is fun, I draw it too, but think about ow much better they could be once you develop a solid anatomical foundation(something I am working on myself). You'll see that eventually you can fuse the best of both worlds. I'm sure you probably didn't need to hear it again but I think you'd benefit. Keep it up man.

    Ok I tried some anatomy practice with cubes but I can't figure how to work with it . I also traced some photo's to see how they would look like in lineart. I didn't realy had time to continue my painting, but I did fix the eyes and eyebrows cuz they looked realy ugly from afar. (somehow you don't see those stuff in closeup...) I'll update the picture in my last post to save some space.

    edit I'll upload the practice stuff I did as soon as I get time to scan them in.

    You should probably read some Loomis, to help you with this. You don't happen to have "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth", do you ? "Drawing the Head and Hands" is also useful, there are some pages in it about the planes of the head...

    Here are some 1-3 min animal sketches from photo ref.
    Zhengpeng's Sketchbook
    Here are some 5-10 min portraits. The last one though was a older drawing and I took much more time for it. If I remember correctly I even traced it partly. I just added it to fill up the empty spot, thought it might be interesting. I plan on doing a few more portraits today, so you can see if I improve a little ^^.

    Hi and welcome to CA. I suck at photoshop so I cant really help you with that. I dont even have a tablet lol ( )

    For the rest, I'd just say draw from life and study proportions. I believe the most important thing. People also tell me to stay away from manga because it's a style deforming reality. You need a good comprehension of anatomy in order to deform it in a convincing way.

    Okay Zheng, sorry i've been away with pneumonia. First off your improvement is awesome. Keep up the good work. To answer your question about the flatness of the woman's face above. I have made a few guides here that i hope may help.
    Zhengpeng's Sketchbook
    No matter what angle the head is in the nostrils and mouth still follow the same plane as the eyes. (Follow the blue lines) I did a little quick shading on the nose as well to make it look less flat. I hope this helps.
