>>2386921 >>2386918 theres a draw thread, and theres a beginner thread. dont make your own thread. You arent good enough to make your own thread, when youre good enough to make your own thread, dont. Dont make your own thread.
You are observing some shapes but fall back into symbol drawing in certain areas. The eyes for instance - try to get over the notion that eye whites are always white. Look at the reference. Really fucking LOOK at it. You'll find that the eye whites are actually quite dark.
Don't draw from photographs anymore. You won't get much better until you start being able to draw people who make micro movements and shift and shit. Don't try to draw "accurately." The eyes aren't white. The hair isn't pulling light the way you've drawn it. The lips aren't that dark. Get out of your head. That is, if you are going for realism. Pro tip: fuck realism. I hope I've been contradictory enough for you
>>2386918 Go to Crimson Daggers or Permanoobs if you want a thread dedicated to your stuff otherwise post in the drawthread. >>2386943 Drawing from life is vastly superior to drawing from a photo. But at the same time if you have to, yeah a photo is better than nothing (but you should try to find a photo with good lighting/contrast, which imo this photo isn't that great at).
Hey OP As a newbie stick to the beginner and draw threads for now. Take heed of the advice above, you're not quite constructing the face yet and it shows as the picture feels very flat. Don't copy for the sake of copying either, try and build up the topography. Also take some life drawing classes.
>>2387413 If you're only looking to replicate but if you have stronger lighting it will be easier to replicate and, on top of that, you'll be able to understand the forms better which will help for your visual library. The drawing/painting usually just looks better/more 3d as well.
