As long as I don’t have to draw detailed features, it remains ok 😂

Hello! I've noticed your recent posts--really nice work. Something you'll continue to practice as you progress through the course is the understanding of form and how it affects your drawings. In this for example, the eyes are rather tricky because of the curvature of the ball plus the mass of the brow ridge hanging on top, making things barely visible to see and seemingly distorted from the view we are used to. Keep in mind not to fall into "symbol" drawing--that is, drawing shapes as the ideas we are used to, like an almond shape for an eye--and instead really focus on what you see in front of you when studying off reference. Once you combine this with the understanding of the subject's form (eyelids, cornea, tear duct, etc.), you'll have a good, solid foundation for drawing.

nice. You could also use a circle to find the lips. The whole mouth is not a flat area, but it is convex.

I think drawing from demo is easier than drawing from a real reference. I think it's time to practise that

You have the brow line correct. The next line down from that should be the nose, but you put the mouth on that line, I think causing you to make the line for the chin much shorter to get it to look right. The result is that your head proportion is off. Once you place the features correctly, I think you'll be on the right track.

In your drawing if you measure the distance from the top of the head to the chin, it’s almost the same as the distance from ear to ear. This gives it a flattened kind of look. If you take another look the video, distance from ear to ear should be much smaller than the distance from the top of the head to the chin. Give it another try, and make sure to measure both horizontal and vertical distances as you’re drawing to make sure the proportions are correct.

Drawing multiple times the loom is method. Started doing frontal. Frontal is definitely more difficult. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated!

I noticed that the height of the face/head (from top of head to chin) in front view Down Tilt .. is greater than the one in front view horizontal 0 angle. The more I fix it to become equal the more it become inconsistent and disfigured, Then I remember that the other component attached to the sphere, which the extension (jaw line) to the chin is almost straight line. Consider that if you rotate the angle downward the top line will remain the same because the circle side is constant while the chin line will go lower than its previous level line. Am i correct? Comments are welcome. Thanks

That’s a good observation. I made a quick diagram to illustrate the point you made

Quick question do the ears move when someone looks up or down

If it's straight on, the ears will stay in the middle of the head, but the ears will tilt depending on where the head is going. If the head tilts down, then the top of the ears would be more visible, if the head tilts up, the bottom earlobes would be more visible. But the ears always stay in the center, sort of equivalent to the brow line.

Here we go, seems like some foreshortening on the nose/mouth/chin proportions needed on the down tilt one?

I think the eyebrows need to stay (follow) on the brow line, otherwise looks flat.

He’s fine. He just needs some iris showing. Looks like you just have the pupils and they need to be centered. 👀🙄
