These are amazing!! Very Happy I love the different angles; were they easier to draw than straight on? The angles one is definitely my favorite!

I always feel bad giving people criticism. Razz On the first one I noticed that his right eye has less shading than the left one, so it doesn't look as finished. And there aren't any eyelashes... but I have a hard time with that because it always ends up looking like a girl. Razz

The only thing I see that you didn't point out is that in the second one, the eyes are looking in two slightly different directions. Razz

ART POST:

Just a few pics to show you how things are going.  As of a couple days ago, I finally graduated from just lessons on one facial part, so I'm pretty excited about that.  It's not like I've "arrived" or am exceptional at eyes, ears, etc., but I now know enough to expand my practice to a full portrait, which is a ZILLION times more interesting to draw. Razz  I'm planning to start full portraits this week. Very Happy

Ears and Mouths:
Spoiler:

Spoiler:

Spoiler:

Also, here's a good old-fashioned LEGO minifig drawing I did for a friend on the Gallery.  It's  for the same guy whose little sister recently died of cancer. Sad  The drawing created the exact effect I'd hoped for: it made several people aware of the situation, and it was the coolest thing to see so many people rushing to the creation to encourage Cody and tell them they're praying for his family. Please keep them in your prayers, too!

"Arms that Hold the Universe":

Okay, lastly, I was SUPPOSED to be practicing the lesson on hair in my drawing book a couple nights ago.  I originally had intended to just do that with a sloppy sketchy face.  Buuuut, it didn't end up that way... Razz
Spoiler:

I pulled facial parts from different places, and she turned out looking like one of my book characters in the end. Razz  Nothing sensational, but I'm proud of it because compared to my older portraits it's a pretty big improvement. Wink

Spoiler:

These drawings are incredible!
It seems like you really have a good mastery over ears and mouths. It's cool seeing your drawings of different types from different ethnicities, ages, etc.

I love the LEGO drawing. Razz  Kind of nostalgic for me... GO AWAY NOSTALGIA. NO ONE INVITED YOU. Razz
You should post more LEGO drawings! I'll definitely be praying for Cody. =)

The last drawing is really good too. You make hair look easy. xD
She reminds me of you for some reason.
I guess it's just because it's in your style. Razz

I highly suggest coconut tire. Nutritious, suspicious, AND delicious!

Bone,
Whoops! Didn't see the new posts!
Thanks a ton, chap!
And yeah, I really need to draw more LEGO stuff. I do have a LEGO drawing I used to get into the Gallery (one of yours truly), but I forget if I posted it our not...
And thanks for your prayers! I'm sure they appreciate them! Wink

LOL, well, since you've never seen me before (I don't think... Suspect ), it must be the style. Razz!

Aaand, well, I haven't written the book yet. I mean I started it years ago, wrote two for a trilogy, scrapped most of them, and have been stuck in idea-sorting phase forever and ever. *face palm* Razz

Aaaanyway!  That last one is a more cartoonish style, and it's not supposed to look like Chris Evans--just Captain America. Wink  I'd say more (like pick my drawings apart or something), but I'm not really sure how many peeps are going to see this, so I'd better make it short and sweet. LOL
Comment and critique if you've got a mind to do it. It's always appreciated. Wink

Ant:
Why, thankee chap! Glad to hear it! 
The subjects in most of those pics came from exercises in my portrait drawing textbook.  I'm starting to do people outside of that more recently, but when I need them I go find a picture instead of having them pose--it's easier, since I can draw almost anyone that way and they never move an inch out of line. Razz
Scare is doing just fine! I'll be sure and tell him you were asking after him.  You should send him an e-mail for all the scoop, though, because a secondary source like me is highly unreliable because  I'm sure he'd enjoy that. Wink
You need to blog about how YOU are btw.  You know, so I can say something mean....

Thank you so much, Holly!  None of them are close to perfect, but I'm excited that I've improved a lot from my very first portrait. ;D
