those are really well drawn heads. I've been interested in painting myself, it's mesmerizing to me the things drawing/painting can bring! Good luck on practicing features!

Thanks! I'm doing my best to figure out mistakes myself but it ain't always easy

21th April:

- another 4 hours of heads (drew 6 heads, I have now 9 in total)

- spent a lot of time on head number 7 and 8 to figure out whats wrong

- pleased how the number 9 turned out - I was drawing eyes too high all the time + bad proportions
