You have a great structure to your drawing! I think there are two main things you could improve upon. The first one is being more loose and expressive with your lines. To achieve this it might be helpful to do a few doodles or just random scribbles before you start drawing, to warm up your muscles and relax! The second is line confidence. If it's difficult to restrict the amount of lines you use then you could try doing ballpoint pen sketches. That would force you to be more decisive since you can't erase it. These are definitely things I struggle with too. I hope you found my advice helpful and I'm excited to see more of your work!

Hey Lo! Great job on this, I can tell who it is off the bat, and it has a great style to it. The biggest things that stand out to me are the shape relationships. If you look at the mouth, it looks like it's from an entirely different face from the eyes, same as the nose and chin. It might help a bit to try and wrap your forms more. In the crude draw over I did below, you can see that I'm treating the mouth as a sphere sitting on the surface of the face. And eye sockets are concave (cuts into) on the surface of the face. When you look at it that way, it'll be easier to see that the eyes are a little bit too big. Or at the very least, one is significantly bigger than the other. I'd highly recommend checking out @sinix's channel and his video called "Painting like a Sculptor". He does a way better job explaining it than I do here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zC3OxonJcXQ I hope this helps, and keep up the good work! This is an awesome portrait! -Kristian

I liked the overlaid noise layer on the 2nd picture, I do it myself too!:) Maybe just a little strong? I usually prefer grayscale noise to colour noise tho. Matter of taste I suppose:) I know its just a small thing:D

This was probably my first try at adding noise as an effect, so you may be right about it being too strong!

In terms of critique iI think it would help to look at values for example in this specific painting while you have your shadows correctly cast there isn't a clear light source being defined in the shading and I think you may need more shadow on the right side of the face some portrait studies you could do is looking at Rembrandt and see how he does his shadows a specific portrait that may help would be the one specifically titled "Self-Portrait with Velvet Beret" it features a similar light source and even though the style may not look like similar to your portrait the basic concepts of values still apply. Also, I'm not sure who the YouTuber is I'm gonna guess is it HasanAbi?

It’s not Hasan! Although I do like his videos. This is actually James Marriott, from a shot in his music video β€œHim”. Here is my reference photo btw

Hi! I did this portrait painting a while ago as fanart for a youtuber I like. I’m now wondering if someone could critique it? Excited to hear your replies πŸ˜„
