I need help drawing anime girl faces. Whenever I try it ends up either looking like a androgynousboy (top,) ugly (bottom right,) or not quite (the other two.) I don't know what it is I'm missing, though.

Thoughts?

Suicide is probably a good idea, have you tried that?

They're generic and bad but if you're having fun making them keep going and eventually you will begin to suck less so long as you are constantly looking for what you can improve in each piece, do not get involved in working on making somthing "good", just make something better than whatever you made last time.

You just triggered /ic/'s autism.

So something more like this

OP, you cant draw. Read the sticky before posting. Follow the sticky.
>>
>>2293633
Your drawing is shit. Learn how to draw. To draw anime you must draw from life. Anyone who knows how to draw anime also knows how to draw from life. Read the sticky and learn the fundamentals. Lurk here, post in the beginner threads and eventually you to will be able to draw anime. It's entirely based on if you want to improve or not.

Experimenting with styles is the last thing you need right now, but if your single goal is doodling a few anime faces that's your prerogative.

Anyway, a more slender chin would be a start in making them look feminine. A little narrower, some anime is downright pointy (though don't go fucking sycra 'could kill a man with your chin' pointy).

If you actually care about getting better, you'll read the sticky.

Advice? Reference... Reference... REFERENCE. Become more familiar with the way anime characters are drawn. Really get into the face structure and most importantly study real life women as well. You may not learn how to draw the type of anime face that you're attempting but it will also teach you how to draw a more mature looking character, that is why you study real humans as well. As soon as you get familiar with the different shapes start learning how to sketch. Yes! Sketching does help, it doesn't matter how bad it looks to begin with, you want to finish strong and the only way you'll be able to do that is if you plan out drawing from the start. Don't fully press the pencil down until you're confident that you're satisfied with the way it looks, then fill in what looks good within the sketch. Most people don't realize that you have to learn to sketch, you just don't inheritly know how to sketch. It takes practice just as much as it took you to get where you are now so make sure to always do it.

This isn't autism. ITS ADVANCED AUTISM.

>>2294373
Wait why do I get included, I gave him some positive feedback? >>2294082
I'll admit, I looked at it and thought of being in middle school with barely knowing how to draw and thought, "Jesus Christ why would you post this shit to /ic/" But then I thought, "no, give the person advice, don't be a cunt and step on someone's dream" Read the whole post next time instead of being a generic troll who uses trendy words to insult other people. I'm sorry other people insulted you but don't take that shit out on me. I can only guess you're OP just by the circumstances alone so I'll talk to you as if you are the OP. If you're going to have this shitty attitude then you're never going to make it. Haters are gonna hate, it's up to you to brush that shit off and take the positive criticism when it comes your way. Ignore the people who say kill yourself and invite the people in who want to make you better.

Bit of advice form someone who spent entire high school drawing trash anime fan art - please fucking stop now while you still can.

>>2294668
Post your "now" art

>>2294709

I'm OP and that's not me. Would be kind of a ridiculous style change, eh? Anyways I appreciate all the good comments and I'll work on it.

Honestly this is actually all because this is out of my style. I'll post my progress tomorrow but it's a good 12:58 right now so I can't do anything.
