Haha thanks so much The forehead wrinkles were hilarious to do, and I spent so much time trying to make them look natural that I don't even know if they're any good or not anymore. So thanks for noticing, and thanks for the faves too !
Wow thanks, I'm horrible at hair, and his was so messy I don't think I got it right, even at the end... So I don't think I can give tips on hair, I'm trying to learn myself As for eyes, I always start with the eyes so that I'm very patient with them. Just make sure you draw exactly what you see in your reference, and the light reflecting off the iris and pupil are extremely important in making the eyes look like they're pointing the right way, so make sure you position them right
Haha it should be easy because you really are just trying to copy as well as you can There's a lot of patience involved though, and it helps if you just like the subject of your drawing to begin with so you've got the motivation. That's what got me into realism to begin with You can start off using a grid, so you can learn to reproduce an image bit by bit, square by square, then wean yourself off it after a while; that might help you get used to positioning facial features correctly!
Wow, the grid really helped! I didn't think it would do much because I don't really like guidelines but it works! Of course, to get to realism I still need to get the shading right, and for that I'll need some fancier pencils.
Anyways, thanks for the help, it's very nice of you!
