Description:
This is based off of my face from a side view. The only thing I wish I had done better were the lips, because they don't look very realistic. Other than that, I'm proud of it.

This is a really good drawing. I think you did really good on the eyes, nose, and hair. The only thing I would watch is the ear. Slightly out of proportion. Again, this is really good. It looks like you put a lot of effort and thought into it. :)

I like to draw faces too! But I can't draw them very good without looking at an actual picture...

I actually think you did the lips perfectly. Sometimes if you try to define them any more, it can look fake. Niiice job! :)

This is positively beautiful; excellent use of space and shadows. The lines beneathe the eyes really make the picture, and the movement of the hair is quite something.

That is so beautiful. I have a picture I drew, people say that it sorta looks like me, but I don't know how to upload it onto the website because it uses a different program than what I normally use. Do you know how I could upload it? That is truly a work of art!!!! I like it alot!!!! Thanks for posting it!!!!!
