Hello again Lam T. Nicer job on your understanding and articulation of the facial forces, spaces, and of course, the relationships and the gestalt, the face-ness of the thing. Though the forces are still getting to be on the right track, but the shapes of the tones are still not broader enough yet. How would you like to kindly find some facial statues and wooden toys, and a typical desk lamp for you to study more simpler against more complex spaces and forms in terms of tones and values?

The logic and explanation is as a result, your harder edged lights and shadows can and will be refined for you even more stronger. So for more info, please look into the Value Drawing PDF rrrright here.

And so, good luck for you and where your creative journey can and will lead you.

Thanks Polyvious, yeah I kinda mess around with the shadow and light 😂 will work on that next time 👍


the face details look great! the thing that's sticking out to me is the length of the arm on the right, it looks disproportionate to the rest of her. i think the shoulders may also be too wide. i think the biggest thing would be the way you're doing the lines themselves. your brushstrokes (well, pencilstrokes) appear unsure, especially with the lines of her chest. i would recommend trying to draw with longer strokes. even if you have to redo it a couple of times, one long line will usually look better than many short lines.
