I think the main issue is the depth and contrast. You can solve this by using different kind of pencils, for exemple: 2H=sketching, HB=main pencil, 4B=dark areas. |
Personally I think using a grid is easier to get the right proportion. I make a grid as follows:
1: open publisher and choose the right format of your drawing.
2: scan the picture you would like to use as a reference.
3: open the picture in publisher.
4: put a grid over it (you can choose the measurements of a grid block yourself).
5: draw the same grid with a hard pencil (light) on your paper.
6: you can draw the outlines easily on the paper.
This way the proportions are right. (place of the eyes, place of the mouth, form of the head etc.)
I hope this helps. I think you can be a great artist if you just start with improving these things. It is possible you won't succeed immediately, but it will improve your skills

I too am already seeing improvements in your work. One suggestion that might help with your continued improvements to your shading is to look into training around value studies, you can Google the term and find a lot of resources to help you learn how to consciously, for lack of a better term, "see" differently. To sort of look at things with an eye to the shapes generated by the interplay of light and shadow. Best of luck developing your talents. |
