: Help drawing oc.

Hello! I'm a self taught artist, but I have a problem. Every time I try to draw a OC, or draw someone in a "character" way, It turns out to be sort of a portrait. I can't simplify features :(
Anyone has any idea of how or where can I practice this? I tend to make everything "realistic", it's hard for me to ilustrate.

Let's see an example.

I tried to simplify it a little, and I'm not saying I don't like it, it's just that I would like to accomplish a kind of a "comic" style, something I can use to create stories, something more quick or dynamic, not this detailed.

You need to avoid any serious shading an exaggerated features that are prominent.
