A new attempt at a realistic drawing. A main focus was the nose, I far to often draw some crappy half assed nose that takes away from the drawing and I think I did much better this time ( yet there's still a lot of room for improvement). I would love any tips for improvement! also, I would like to point out, that's a shoulder, not more neck!
Hi from reddit. I think you gots potential up the wazoo (though I'm not in any way a pro) and I like your style. As for tips, I think your hair is looking good however you may want to concentrate the details of individual strands to specific parts of the hair while leaving the rest with a sort of blocked color.
Thank you! I really appreciate that! I Think next time my hair will look better, I've gone all over the place with how to draw hair and now I think I'm pretty close to getting it right. Thank you for the tip
You are very welcome. I know what's helped me (and sometimes hindered, but I always force myself to power on through) is just to keep doing it and redoing, and redoing it, until the point of ad nauseam.
Your nose is great, though just like ChokeReel said, don't be afraid to use darker shadows. Anyway,I think you know this, you're neck is a bit too long. Next time, either stop at the neck or try to draw in the shoulders.
that actually is supposed to a be a shoulder, it looks like it's just a different light source though
Dont be afraid to make darker lines on the face and make darker shadows
