That's excellent but don't forget to enlarge the neck, which later will become difficult for you not having practiced it together with the head.

Nicest job on your head construction gestures, Erick. That's very good on innately capturing the forces of the plans of construction.

So, if I was to give you a completely and totally sincere judgement, then it would be that a few head drawings have too much rigidity in the solid foundation, but otherwise, they're definitely flexible. Would you please make your quick sketches of the proportion heads even much more flexible and organic with 157 minutes of 59 second heads and expressions, with drawing with the shoulder instead of just the wrist?? (157 x 60/59/4 days, 9420/59/4, 160/4=40 sketches of funny faces a day) And the reason why is as a result, it could, would, and furthermore, should be able to help you out on your current goal. If your nest one is to help make your proportions less rigid, and to make them feel very dynamic, energetic, and fluid, then I'd allow and encourage you to go with it. For more details, be sure to check out a link to Understanding Comics By Scott McCloud. (I haven't picked up a copy of this book, yet; neither did you, but I'd be able to check it out, if I'd be able to take it with a grain of salt, if there may and/or might have some references of heads.

Well, my hat's off to you and your goal, and I hope you've found this advice definitely and absolutely helpful, useful, encouraging, and informative.
