I didn't see the downloads until just a few minutes ago. I followed the visual style and did some measuring. Although, to be honest I struggle with the measuring. By struggling I mean I seem to take an inordinate amount of time to measure and when I think I have it, I measure again and come to realize that nope, my proportions are incorrect. I'll try it again with the newly downloaded portraits provided. In the meantime, here is what I managed by doing the first 3 videos of the visual style. I know it is still not accurate, but would like to hear some feedback as to what I need to improve. Yes I know I added features (like the mouth and the eyes) when that's not part of the first 3 videos.

Good start- I'll offer this to make it better. The shapes can be more simple. The eyes for instance have more information than they need. This stage is about placement so you can use the minimum amount of info required.
