I think it's a good start. I don't know how to help except to say there are links to lots of tutorials in the forums that talk about drawing faces, hair etc...have you looked at those?

It is a very good start! I would only say more shadows on the face and head, and soften out the lines if you want realism. There aren't many definite lines in a face or shirt, more of shadows. You have the right idea though!

I heard from an artist I admired once that bald people are the hardest to draw. I find them more fun, personally. Kudos.

this started out as a reputably awful picture of mr. e. i was going to just forget it but then i did the blurry bit in the background and was really very happy with that, despite the fact that it was a total accident. so then i erased his face and gave him a pair of giant aviators. (he did have aviators in the reference...just not quite that big.)

why does it have only 1 wing
Nyuusen (Jan 2, 2005)
the title is unnecesarily long and bothersome but other wise its okay, sketchy and a bit splotchy in some areas where the black and green meet but okay.
bobernater (Jan 6, 2005)
the title is so nesacary

I had a pair of Pumas once. One time I drew them up close and it came out pretty well. That was pre-4th grade. I haven't drawn a close-up picture of shoes since then. I wanted to draw a close up picture of Pumas. Or a Puma. Or whatever.

Move to beginner if you want... I was beginning to get the feeling that if I didn't draw soon, I'd never draw again. It was supposed to come out better than this, though.

Why are my comments always so long.....?

i stand by my belief that "Cats" and "Stairway to Heaven" have some strange, subliminal connection.

Yeah, everytime you masturbate, God kills a kitten.
Kids, don't masturbate.
