You definitely have nice looking lines and dynamic shapes, here's some things that might help. You've spotted the issue with the jaw's proportions, I would add that it could be longer and rounder too. It might help you to imagine the overall mass in a box; your's is quite square whereas the reference is taller and more rectangular. You're not far off but the hair/forehead could take up more room vertically too. The halfway point between the top of her head and bottom of her chin is roughly at her eyebrow or the top of her nose. Finally, the value groups in your drawing could be improved. You've made a good start with the groups to the left and right of the face in the hair. Try blurring your eyes/squinting at he reference and you'll notice only a small part of her face is in light. The rest is in shadow including her neck. I've drawn on a couple of examples of how you can group values into shapes in the future. I hope this helps and please ask if anything needs explaining better. Well done, keep drawing!

There's no reaction video this time? By the way, the skull models should actually go to the worst participants - to practise. The best ones can already draw it well :-D

'Preserving Life' Diptych Oil on aluminium Painted from life I wanted to read the line between portrait & still life by using a skull and facial cast as my subject matter 😊 really enjoyed the play of light on both when using a Grisaille approach. Also in Halloween when surrounded by skeletons its easy to forget each one represents a person, a life and death 💀

Hey y'all, This is a linocut reliefprint. (Basically means that I carved a big ol' stamp and squashed some paper into it) When I was a kid, I always used to dress up as a samurai for Halloween, so I thought it would be cool to do a skull with a kabuto helmet. Good luck everyone!

My submission for the Skull Challenge. You could say I had to juggle some things to get it done.

Baby Skelly circa 1986, disguised as a regular human, going trick-or-treating with his friends. Each household gets the fright of a lifetime when Skelly lifts his person mask, revealing a truly cute skeletal face!

I think the un-shaded version scanned in and coloured digitally would look awesome. Always love a pen drawing too though.
