Hi Jordan,

You're doing great and your rendering of faces are overall fantastic, But one tip that I have for you is to not draw every individual tooth in the mouth. It's a common mistake that a lot of people make.

Staying on the topic of the mouth you also shouldn't have the top and bottom set of teeth show when someone smiles, it can make the smile look forced and un natural.

keep practicing and study real-life portraits.

Personally what helps me most is to get the shape of the head down before you do anything else. Try to think about it as being made of basic shapes, circles and boxes. Also, don't worry too much about every detail looking exactly right, it's really surprising how something that looks wrong by itself will look fine once you put the rest of the face in.

If you're looking for tutorials you might check out Proko's "how to draw facial features" and "the art of characture".

Line-of-Action (L-o-A) has a section on faces and expressions. You might want to check it out. I see you have your work dated. Excellent, you can go back to see how you are doing. Lookup caricature on the internet. That can lead you to what you are looking for. The drawings you have with the current sample are really good. Let's have more. Get some rest.
