Impressive job, Noodleay, nonetheless, I've got one littler request: I think you could and should do yet another 5 minute face and expression in your next practice session, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty please, please, please, please, please????? The reason is because, your lines of action and rhythm will feel even more than liveliest, longest, largest, lightest, and loosest. Assume and pray that it'll be even more than popular.

Nice job! You are doing a good job doing the side view of the eye, which is never exactly easy!

Some of your basic head proportions are a little shaky, so you might benefit from a little study of basic guidelines: ie, eyes fall halfway down the face, bottom of nose falls halfway between chin and eyes, mouth falls halfway between bottom of nose and chin....

I made a little drawing to try and show what I mean https://www.dropbox.com/s/98jt1z4p4etpihe/Basicfacialstructure.jpg?dl=0

There's also a good video here:

I hope this helps! I think you have a lot of expressiveness to your lines and pulling things a little more into proportion will help your stuff take a huge jump! Keep at it!
