Erilia..

Mark is a fantastic teacher.. and it appears you are a very fine student. You did WONDERFULLY! A few observations:

You did a great job gridding... but I would use much lighter lines.. that way they will fade into your drawing or be easier to erase. I could see you struggling with this. Use a 2B pencil for the grid.. with a very light touch (IE: hold the pencil by the back tip and just allow the weight of the pencil make the lines)

Your shading is effective.. but it would be even better if you used a cotton ball, QTip, of stump (very lightly) to blend a bit.. this could give you an even more realistic look

Teeth.. You will find when drawing teeth you need to cheat a bit. Most graphite artists (myself included) NEVER draw the line between the teeth all the way to the top. only go about 1/2 way up or so and let it gently fade.. The viewers eyes will fill it in. You did a supurb job the way you did it.. and it reads ok.. but if you make it too dark.. it looks way off (even if it's that way in the photo.) Better is to use shading on each tooth... dark on the edges going to lighter on the center. Also.. wherever something recedes into shadows (behind something else).. it gets darker. So the back teeth would be darker then the front ones. Likewise up under the lip.

I will do a digital workover on this if you would like.. to show you what I mean..

Excellent work on this.. I am so impressed!

Here's a very quick idea of what I'm taking about... hope it helps and doesn't offend you. It's just easier to explain drawing with a picture in addition to an explanation. By the way.. this is YOUR picture.. simply tweaked a wee bit.. it only took me about 20 mins.. would be even easier for you to do with the original. Let me restate.. Your first attempt at drawing lips is excellent!

@Bushcraftonfire : Thank you so much for all your advice, you are an awesome teacher I will keep it mind everything you told me, it's amazingly helpful And thank you so much for taking the time of doing a digital work-over, it helps me see everything you told me very clearly, and thank you for the tip about the grid, when I was erasing it still showed the lines, so I was yelling at myself to have such an heavy hand

@Melody Jeoulex : Thank you sis

@FanKi : Thank you, I will do more, it's my super training program
And I love how Mark explains too

@TerryCurley : Thank you I'm so happy you think it looks life like, it was my purpose

Thank you everybody, I'll do more tutorial soon, and I will practice doing lips again, to improve more ( again thank David for all your awesome advice )

I am impressed. Now draw them from a variety of angles with a half smile.
