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.

i think the ear is just a little bit out of proportion, but still! that's amazing, i love it, and i don't think there's anything wrong with the lips.

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.
