    I'm not understanding what you think the problem is here. It looks extremely promising to my eyes.

    It looks like you started, got frustrated that it didn't look right immediately and gave up. I would keep painting. It looks like you have the shape down pat, its just a matter of painting it and fiddling I think. Perhaps a more experienced artist could back me up on that, but I think with a little more paint it would be easier to see how to help.

    I know exactly how you are feeling! I was just like you at the start. I was eager to get results and felt frustrated. Now, coming to your present work. I find that its a perfectly good start! A bit of patience and some more work and everything will come out right, I am sure.
