Hey! I actually ended up attempting this myself and got carried away haha! But yeah firstly I'd say not to go to hard on yourself and ESPECIALLY don't think about your paintings or art as "bad". I think it's more helpful to create a checklist of all the things that help make a piece strong and go down said checklist for example: Proportions, value structure, form, composition, perspective etc. and then ask yourself what could be improved in each category. That way it's more objective, and you know where to go. I think your painting has a really strong sense of form/dimensionality! However, it could be stronger in terms of proportion/ likeness along with value range. In terms of being like a pro, I'm not there yet myself, but I think it's partially about being strong in all those things but also being able to add your own touch/ flare/ find ways to have fun with your art and present it in an interesting way. As you can see, from the beginning, I did my best to focus on the structure of the face and sort of divorce myself from the idea that I am drawing a "face" in a sense. I feel like the proportions could still be stronger, but I did manage to get some form of likeness. Then immediately, I went into mapping out the main values from darkest to lightest. In the beginning, probably best to stick to around 5 or less. And (this part would probably make sense to you) think about the shapes that each value takes up. After those main values, I went into the half tones, and then the details. Had a little bit of fun towards the end!
