I think I understand the shape of the skull a lot better, and I can now make it look like the head as at a certain angle (whereas my earlier attempts at angled heads looked completely off).
As for the proportions of the features… well I think I’m doing better than before (I don’t have any ears or eyes that are completely misaligned with each other), but I’m still not quite getting it right. If you look at the three faces at the bottom of the page I copied from Andrew Loomis’ book yesterday, it’s the same head from three different angles in the original image (although it does like like the haircut is a little different in each image). In my attempt, they don’t even look like they have the same ethnicity! Looking at it, I think that’s mostly due to the shape of the jaw.
I’ll just copy what I posted in my figure-drawing thread:
“I haven’t uploaded anything for a few weeks. I stopped drawing during exam week, then I travelled for a bit right after Christmas, and now I’m back. I did a few drawings (mainly just portraits) at random times within that, which I just uploaded en masse.”
