I think they both came out great.
Here's my critique: You have a great talent with eyes, they are excellent and extremely well proportioned on both. It looks like you're struggling a
little bit with noses and/or the nose to mouth ratio. I always had trouble with that too. It's hard to draw the face, especially when it's at an
angle because our vision naturally assumes we are looking at the face straight-on, so we try to keep everything level... ugh! Anyway, this might
The shadow and light and colors are fabulous, nice job with that!
Question, you said you were drawing from looking at photo's... were you trying to get them exact?
I was an art major throughout high school and in college. I always had natural talent but obviously had to learn the basics (if I wanted to pass my
courses). One thing that I learned was to draw things as I percieve them and not worry about what anyone else sees. We all see things differently
If you have the time the money and the inspiration I would most definitely persue it. It can get fairly expensive depending upon what medium you

Gestalt (negative/positive space) and then surrealism, finally oils.
Thanks so much for sharing!
