I struggled with the shading but it’ll get better With practice. This is my 3rd study and it came out the best. I tend to over elongate the eye so I drew more guide lines to help with proportions. Feedback appreciated especially on proportions!

Hi esheilds. Your bottom eye looks accurate and pretty. I like that you added the shading under her brow. If I were to point anything out, I would go back to the lesson and pay attention when Stan talks about almond eyes. Your eye is very symmetric on the horizontal axis, I believe the shape would be more interesting if the bottom apex was more to the left. Especially since your reference has a really cute droopyness to her eye. This might be causing the eye to feel long? Either way the added structure will help you with preportion. Preportions that you might have gotten a bit blind to- you misjudged the proportion and shape of her eyebrow which makes the eye larger. Her top lid is showing more, which makes her expression calmer in the ref. The waterline- I dont know if this is a preportion issue or a drawing issue. It seems very thin. Its also completely white which makes it pop out too much. I like that you are adding it, but on a person, especially at this angle, It's a lot more subtle. A heavy black outline to show it is a bit severe. Or maybe its that the consistent shape you drew flattens it out, which kills the forshortening. Honestly, I don't know. It just feels like the skin of her lids is like a membrane, so if anyone else has any ideas. You are heading in a good direction I hope that maybe my feedback can help you out. (also a nitpick - this lady has a slight epicanthal fold that crosses over her inner eye - your drawing ends the fold prematurely. It makes sense that you missed this since many people don't practice anatomy on this eye style.)

Hey guys! I bought today premium version of drawing a portrait! Haven't started watching yet but I draw a portrait before. I didn't try to copy exactly like it's on referance but I would like to know if there is something wrong? (I'm sure it is). I am very excited that this course include hair drawing because I don't really like the way I did it. I am trying to draw at least one portrait and I will post one after finishing this entire course. Please leave some feedback, I will appreciate it a lot :)

This looks really good. Very complete and carefully made. One thing that sticks out to me is the volume of the hair. The face proportions that you've drawn are within the realm of normal but because her puffy hair is small it gives the illusion of her forehead being much smaller. It would work if her hair was wet and slicked down against her skin but its actually very bouncy.
