Done as part of a 1 hour class.

My current goal is: Improve at correctly capturing the overall proportions of the human form


A good drawing! The proportions are good and the face is expressive. Some possible areas of improvement:

- You drew the jawbone connecting under the middle of the ear -- it actually ends before the ear (you can feel this if you touch your own face). Either the ear should be drawn further back or the jawline more to the front, unless that line under the ear is somethign else (hair, wrinkle, etc)

- You used straight lines for shading on most of the drawing but curved lines in the area between the eye and eyebrow. They look out-of-place and a bit like wrinkles or really weird eyelashes. You can avoid this by sticking to one sort of line for shading (straight or curved).

- Maybe you were constrained by time but the hair looks incomplete having just a couple patches shaded in. It would look better if you either shaded it all the way or left it all unshaded.


Thank you for the critique. Your advices are very helpful, I've really misplaced the ear and haven't even noticed that before now. Will do my best on shading next time.

Gorgeously done sketch, Zet2908, love it very much. If I was to give you a further recommendation, then it would be to be more faster and boldest in your next 30 minutes class mode of the faces and expressions, would you please go for that? And, the reason is because, your overall facial proportions of the human forms will be executed even most effectively in your next class out.

Hope it's been positively and utterly of assistance.
